Geisha in Acrylics

 

Hello Friends!

Yesterday I worked on painting these Geisha with acrylics. It is on an 11″x14″ canvas. This is for last week’s class of Let’sFaceIt2020. And our instructor was Jeanne-Marie Webb.

She said she has been painting a lot of plants this year, so her figures had white faces (but weren’t Geisha) and lots of leaves around them. She also only painted an indication of shoulders, but not whole bodies. So this is what I came up with for mine.

I started out with a white canvas that I painted over with black gesso, but as the painting evolved, I decided I didn’t like the dark canvas, so I painted in the scenery last to give them a brighter background.

This was a lot of fun! I want to do more Asian figures. I just love the many Asian cultures I have learned about. I think they are all beautiful people.

This week’s class is a pastel figure. So it should be fun, too. It is a mini lesson with just one short video. I am glad!

Have a wonderful day! 😀
