Week two of the January Painting Project - faces and figures

When I was a school girl we all had rough books that were supposed to be used to take notes in the lesson. Mainly I used mine to draw ladies in clothes I designed.. I feel as though this week I am going to be going back into that space and rediscovering that naive imagined style. I might use some reference here and there - I can't be sure yet! This one popped out of my arm and down the brush. It is acrylic on artboard. I stamped a pattern on the surface before I painted it which gives it an interesting colour patina. Fun!
