this time was: gessoes, [both black & white] pastels, colored pencil, acrylic paints, polymer sealers [matte & gloss]..done on recycled plywood, 10 x18".
As reference a photo I took of my sister was used; though more impressionistic than a portrait, I was striving for more a dreamy, emotive kind of effect.
Initial stages = watery applications of the gessoes dried overnite.

Pastels & acrylic paint next day, using fingercots, dabbing at the cosmic pattern & background.
Additional wet glazes set near my infared heater quickened drying time.
More info on the sectioned paintbox in my post of 7/29/12. The comb brush is great for hair strokes; as well in landscapes, etc.
