Today for my sketch of the day, I finished a commissioned piece that I did for a person who bid on a similar earlier version I put up for auction but lost the bidding on it. It is done in a similar style but it is far from identical to the first one. This is a 5x7" acrylic painting on an 8.5x11" piece of orange toned paper. I coat the paper with massive amounts of acrylic medium before I start the painting to put a barrier between the painting and the paper. If the paper ever deteriorates, there will be enough acrylic surface that it will still hold together as a piece.
