Painting on wood

This is my first attempt at painting with acrylic on wood panel. Makes sense as my hubby is a cabinet maker, lots of spare wood. I like the grain of the wood. How it can be used to look like skin. It's a nice smooth surface & if I cock up I can just sand it off. Liking this new colour palette - will be a few more of these coming up! 

Back to black

This was a quick fee hand sketch with no reference. Love her pose & jet black hair. I'd like to do more messy/sketchy work. It's hard to free up when your instinct is to be be really neat!
