     I am returning to a more realistic face today.  I am part of a weekly technique challenge that started today, and the theme this week is to use graphite and acrylic together in one piece.  I have drawn a portrait of my hubby on a 12x12 piece of wood.  My problem is that I like the drawing so much, I am hesitant to add the paint :). I know that I want to use transparent washes, and leave some of the wood showing through.  I also know that I want the pencil to show as well.  Hmmmmm....what to do what to do?!?!?  Stay tuned tomorrow for some progress :)

Regan, this is AWESOME! I've always struggled with realistic faces which is why I go the whimsical route so often. Looking forward to seeing the direction you take!
