Good morning and Happy Paint Party Friday!! Its only my second week posting but I am having fun already! Thanks so much to all those who left a comment on last weeks PPF post. I was welcomed with open arms.
This painting was inspired by a friend's daughter who loves Strawberry Shortcake. Do you remember her? I sure do. I was a big fan back in the day. ;) I wanted to create my version of this classic character. I sketched her out and colored her in with my caran d'ache crayons and then got to work on the background. I had a lot of fun with this. I collaged some papers onto the canvas board and applied layers of pink and green paint along with white gesso. I used a paper towel to wipe away after I applied the paint. I typically don't do that but I have to say I loved the results. Between the papers and paint layers it has lots of great texture. She looks better in person . . . was fighting with my scanner to get a good image. I think I lost that battle! lol
