Good Times in May

"Good Times in May"

The image on top (acrylic paint on rough watercolor paper) received so much positive feedback that I decided to quickly remove it from sale and keep it as a reference for future pieces such as this one.

A 10x30" canvas was first primed with black gesso, then I used a palette knife to add cadmium red paint. A white conte crayon was used to outline the seven lovely ladies.

The ladies were then painted in with black gesso.

On the original image, I used a white gel pen to add the white detail. This time I used a Posca acrylic marker.
