    Great colors and texture! Can you guess how the texture is created? Gesso on board? Are the hair and dress done with a pen?
  • Leif Peng 3y

    Only a guess but the gesso texture is probably from having a sponge pressed against it while it was drying. The hair and dress looks to me like (acrylic?) wash scrubbed in with a hogs hair brush.

    Maybe a brush. I can see white lines going up and down in the dress, so I thought maybe those were the areas a pen didn't cover. Either way, I like the effect. Thanks for taking your time to answer my questions.

    My pleasure -- I'd love to know for sure. It's very rough and scribbly ... maybe black grease pencil? Whatever it is, it's very effective isn't it? :^)
  • White Moon Studio 3y

    Yes, indeed. I feel like if I know how to do it, I can do the same which is not quite true.
