Kat Von D painting

For these last two paintings I started experimenting with a different approach then I'm used to.
First after I transfered my sketches on to the board, I started to block in the basic values in black and white with acrylic paint. Next I went over the acrylic with color oil paint(mostly opaque color). blocking in mostly matching the values laid down in the acrylic underpainting. After that I just kept building,transitioning and detailing with more oil till I felt it was finished
