Summer - The Process

Here are my WIP pics of this painting...

 It all starts with a sketch
 The drawing with chalk on a black gessoed wood cradleboard
 First coat of paint on the background
 First coat on the face
 This is always the step where I doubt the painting is going to "work". I call this the "Ugly Phase".
 You can see that the face has one coat except for that right eye--the second coat makes a huge difference. 
 Almost done. She just needs a few accents and the chalk to be wiped off.
Almost done. I will add a few more accents after this.
And the finished painting!
