Patchwork Sweater

Here's where I am tonight on New Years Day 2014!  Two days work so far.  It's coming together...

 Covering the face  SCARY!!!!(drawn with pastels over acrylic painted washes) with matte acrylic medium.  It altered the detail some but not very significantly.

 Adding Crackle mediums: Golden Crackle Medium, it goes on opaque white and dries looking the same.   Decoart One-Step Crackle goes on milky and dries clear.  I added antique lace doilies with clear gloss varnish/medium as well.
 The rice paper texture can be seen in the "window" area.  Cracks are beginning to form nicely but I want more texture.

 Building up color and adding detail with pastel pencils.

I started with a charcoal pencil sketch on gatorboard.  The piece is 38x40.  Scrapbooking and rice paper were used as well as antique lace doilies.
