Mariah, USA for JKPP.
I cleaned up all the oil paints to make a clean surface to work on some other projects. First up, I wanted to paint out the red rudolph nose in my last acrylic portrait of Mariah. Unfortunately when I opened my acrylic paint palette keeper I found plenty of ready to use paint - all red - the last thing I needed. So first step was to do some sketches in red to use up the paint...
Sorry about those hypnotized looking eyes...
