Autumn Dryad

I tried something a little different with this one. I stretched paper over a board and sealed it with acrylic gel medium. Then I did a drawing from a sketch directly onto the paper. I sealed it again. And then I painted a gouache under painting until I was satisfied with composition and value, then the idea was to glaze oils into it. I ended up painting with oils more than anything and I probably overworked it. However, I do like the piece overall. I'll most likely do a winter themed one in a month or so.
