I've been taking an online Drawing Lab class and this was a painting that I did using 5 x 7 canvas. I first applied Golden molding paste which I mixed up with blue acrylic paint allowing it to dry overnight. Then I did a line drawing of my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel face over the blue surface. Next I started with the eyes and just worked my way around the face. The nice thing about using acrylic paint is that it dries fast, so I didn't have a lot of down time.
