I am so excited to show you this face today. I was inspired by a birthday card I received from my dear Mum. Of course I didn't want to copy the exact pose on the card and I changed a few things up.
I also did not use watercolour paints or pencils but created very thin washes of acrylic paint to give the same effect. I had to work fast with blending however as the acrylics dry very quickly. I again used some heavy kraft paper I had collaged dictionary pages and music from a hymnal then gessoed over it all. Then I sketched this and went to town painting it. I had a lot of fun.
My girl looks pregnant but she isn't so she told me. She just had a rather scrumptious lunch and she was bulging a bit, nothing like a good hot cup of tea and then picking flowers for a little exercise won't hurt.
She told me her name was Lucinda and she was going to take her crown in for some touch ups with more colour. Hmmm, I said to myself, looks good to me..cheeky little one I thought.
Til tomorrow, stay creative and thanks for dropping by. Always love to hear what you have to say.
Stay tuned for a little giveaway post. I just celebrated my 50th and I am 1 shy of 200 Followers.
