29 Faces-Day 15

Wow, now just over half way through the 29 Faces Challenge, I have had a lot of fun so far and have really enjoyed the different faces that I am sharing with you all.

Today's gal has just come from a party, her name is Bella. Bella loves the colour green and so she shopped for the prefect outfit to dress for the party. When she arrived everyone commented on the colour and the hat to match. No gal can go out to a function without a matching hat, just ask the Queen. 
Anyways Bella had a great time and now she is off to bed, too much excitement for one day she told me.

I painted Bella on W/C paper and used both W/C pencils and my new W/C crayons and some gesso and acrylic paint.  I left the background for now, not sure of what colour to use because I don't want to take away from the wonderful colours I have selected. I chose a nice acrylic Tangerine to go with the green, it just makes everything pop. 
We spent all day outside attending to the gardens, more planting, shuffling of some plants. We got the veggie garden tilled and planted potatoes. Black flies had a feast on me and now I am all itchy from the bites. I hate bugs but it just goes with the spring climate. I think it will be an early night to bed for me. My back is acting up from bending over so time to rest. 
My sketch tomorrow is quite a bit different from the usual. The rules of the challenge are you don't have to just do human faces so I sketched something I recently got as a gift so I will let you all sit and ponder what it might be.
Til tomorrow, take care and thanks for dropping by.
