I've been working like crazy to get things ready for my senior show. And guess what - I actually took progress pictures! I started in acrylic, finished in oil and tried to channel Klimt. :)

wow this is so beautiful! I love the colour palette, and wonderful to see your process.

Looked through some of your earlier work too - it's going to be a great show I think! Just wondering -- what is and how do you do a gesso transfer?

A gesso transfer is where you lay down a layer of gesso and place a photo copy on top, pressing it firmly down into the gesso. Let it dry thoroughly and then rub all the paper off by getting it wet. It's a little tricky, but you can get some cool effects with it.
