Another experiment to see if I can use the transparent under painting technique to do a face. The under painting looks really garish! I'm still not sure about the colors that I should use there. The results are pretty satisfactory however. "Janice" 14 x 11 oil

Protest taking place today in the DFW area for today! Let’s make sure our voices are heard. It’s never been a better time for us to come together as a collective. We won’t let division come in between US. We’re making history today whether we realize it or not. Let’s keep at it! And for those that are able to make it to the protest please make sure to wear a mask and bring adequate gear to protect yourself just in case and also let’s make an effort to stay hydrated. These are photos from earlier this week at the protest in Carrollton shot by @raffi_andonian ! #blacklivesmatter#nojusticenopeace#georgefloyd ✊🏽✊🏼✊🏻✊🏾
