Lately I've been working with chaep plastic Halloween masks from the 1960's-80's that I've collected. Now I'm starting my first painting in what I hope to be a series. This first one is supposed to be a gypsy. I remember these well! Here's the results of the first session, the underpainting, which was done over an orange-red acrylic ground. The rest will be in oils. I'm going to let the underpainting dry for a few days before I start modeling the mask more.
