I'd appreciate critiques on this. Please be harsh. I'm sure my professor will be.
I'm working on an acrylic portrait of a friend of mine for class on Thursday. This is my very first time working with acrylic. I'm really not loving now fast it dries. I used the background to fiddle around with how the acrylic goes and on dries and shades so I didn't completely ruin the face. I needed to lay down the background anyway so that the wispy hair could be painted over it.
There IS more to the lower right of the painting but I needed background behind the hair there so the bg went over the pencil. There will also be a hint of shoulder under the hair on the right.
I'm painting more of this tonight so I'll update as I go.
