DLP week 2 Gesso


I started by covering the blank page with a layer of gesso, then spreading out acrylic paint over that.

I used gesso to create circles and then covered the pencil sketch of the girl.

With Gelato crayons I filled in the circles.

I used acrylic paint to finish the girl.

With graphite pencil I traced around each circle and then smudged to create shading.

I used a circle stamp and white acrylic paint to add more texture to the page.

Then added more gesso in a few places before finishing with letter stickers to add my song lyrics.
