lavennzosy Completed the base layers. Following by are fatter layers with more details (perhaps). I don't know how my paintings end up, I like the surprises found through the progress, which Is why I don't do color study, just a simple figure study. 2w

lavennzosy It's actually the first layer of overpainting then it got a little more detailed than expected. Her face doesn't look right obviously, few corrections to be done. 2w

lavennzosy This painting is finally come to the very end, I would say 98% completed, after a week of upset delayed. The canvas was warped and off-square when I sprayed a little water on the canvas back. I was helpless for awhile and reluctantly to re-stretch the canvas because I had never stretch a canvas, i don't know how to do it, I search for alternative solution on the Internet, watched videos on YouTube....and finally I ordered tools, pull out the old staples then stretched and stapled the canvas again. I'm glad i did it. It was easy but I need more strength training on my arm's muscles. Took me hours (with rest in between) to pull off the old staples. 🏻 1mon

lavennzosy First time using Bristol smooth paper. The ultra-smooth surface make pencil rendering so much easier. This is a drawing referring to a beautiful girl named #林小宅 I discovered in Weibo (Chinese social media). I'm adding small strokes of lines in building the form. 1mon

lavennzosy Starting new drawing on new low cost aluminum easel. The last painting's canvas was warped and off-square. I'm waiting for my new stretcher bars delivery. It will be my first attempt to stretch a canvas. That painting probably will be stapled on four sides instead of gallery wrap because the new stretcher bars are thicker. 2mon

lavennzosy Skipping closed grisaille for this painting; instead, painted (block-in perhaps) loosely in color. Was a pleasure painting in this way. Care less on detail, which should be focus only on color overpainting or refining. 2mon
