Wow! Very cool--checked out the portrait you did last year, too!

I've always wondered how people layered their work--first with roughs and then tightening up. I do roughs, but what you did after the pencil sketch and what I've seen other artists do, that's what I consider rough (I'm a wimp, I guess).

May I ask about this process? Do you wait until it dries and then layer over it as you sharpen up details? What if a color isn't opaque, do you continue to add layers? (That's been one of my problems.)

I'm sure all of this also adds loads of sensuous texture to the canvas!

Take care,
