Untitled 2 day

I’m impressed by what egg can do in less than 2 days. Let me show you the first day. I drew it and painted an underpainting – on terrible drawing paper! – the 1st day:

Now on that terrible drawing paper, which gave me awful problems, like weird circular spots that wouldn’t take paint, the second day:

That’s several layers of egg glazes on the face (in 1 day). The background is almost completely casein. I’m probably going to quit working on it. I was in such a hurry, I didn’t even know I had grabbed a piece of cheap wood pulp sketching paper. 9 x 12 in. (22.9 x 30.5 cm)
