Flapper girl on canvas paper

I haven't been doing any acrylic pieces lately, but I just glanced across the studio and realized that this one has been sitting on the easel for about a month now and I never posted it, so here you go. I did this one using just a few colors, on a piece of "canvas paper" from a Canson pad. I mounted it onto a piece of board so it would be solid while I was working on it. Canvas pads and canvas board get a bad rap but I think that they are a nice texture to paint on with acrylics.

More gray girls...

Even when I'm not posting I've usually got some stuff in the works. Here are some more of the gray gouache studies I've been playing around with lately.
