Hello Friends:

I painted Jessica in Open Studio the other night. For this portrait, I used illustration board coated two times with gesso. What I loved about this surface is that I was able to use a cloth to "sand away" hard edges and light areas on her face which gave the drawing a bit of a glow that would have been difficult to achieve on canvas. I'm also liking the mysterious quality that comes with monochromatic drawing and painting. I hope you enjoy it too!
