Hello everyone. Hope your Easter was a pleasant one and that you enjoyed time with family and friends.
I have another girl for you today -this one which incorporates the background into the girl (or vice versa). This girl is painted with acrylics and she is painted on the textured, patterned background. The background is a combination of spray inks, paints, stencils and stamping.
She is inspired by the class I am taking by Natasha may -with a twist. In the class, we painted over the background so that the hair contrasted. I LOVE the fact that I left the background as is and only outlined the hair. I did put a white shadow around the entire lady so that she stands out just a bit.
Art is about expression, growth and learning. In this painting, I learned a few things that I will do different next time. When I make a slightly tilted, turned head, I have to be more careful of the facing cheek. it is a bit thick on this painting but I could not fix it without sanding it right down. But, in general, I really like this piece.
Thanks for visiting!
