This is an attempt at a technique that Sam Weber demonstrated last winter at the Arts Forum. It involves doing something akin to a monoprint with acrylics, then painting the values and detail with watercolors. Mine was only marginally successful with these materials, so I did some fairly major tweaking in Photoshop.
Here are a few steps after the initial acrylic monoprint was done. It begins after a little of the face was started with watercolors. I wanted to document the acrylic part but it goes really fast and there's no time to stop and photograph it in progress.
