mixed media on 8x10 gallery wrapped canvas
Today was supposed to be my Sunday Sketches post but alas, I don't have a new sketch to share. However I did do some painting this week in the form of "she art"! I had so much fun creating this new girl! If you haven't taken Christy Tomlinson's "She Art" class I highly recommend it! So much fun and she shares tons of mixed media techniques as well.
I created this background in a vintage style using a layer of papers that I tried not to cover up too much. I used raw umber and payne's gray cause I just love them together but I like the distressed look the raw umber gives this piece. I had so much fun with her outfit! I was trying to create a look that wasn't too modern and how cute are the shoes! lol
I have yet to add a phrase. And I am never at a loss for words. But just this morning I found a tag I saved from a new shirt I bought that says "life is beautiful, dress accordingly" and I think that will fit perfectly with this girl! I may just cut up the words and collage them on! What do you think??
PS . . . thanks for all the amazing comments on my pink Paint Party Friday post!!
