Hello Everyone… I took a little break with sketching and decided to “commit” a painting in acrylics… sooooo, here it is :) This painting is of course based on the Jennifer Morrison & The Lana Parrilla “facie” from twitter :)

I conclusion… I used only five colors to make it. White, black and three shades of grey. Size of canvas (50x40 cm - 19,6x15,7 inches). It is 98% finished but I still need to work on some details with mini brush & of course dry it out - cause it’s still quite… well… wet :) 

Hope You like it! :)
