My plans today were cancelled which meant I had a free day to do whatever I wanted! I headed into the art room to work on some big eyed beauties.
Garden Girl Sketch in Progress
Garden Girl Composition Plan in Progress
Hello Dolly was just a quick sketch done to use as a practice painting before I started working on Garden Girl. I like my Garden Girl sketch so much I'm afraid of ruining her with a poor paint job! The copy turned out kind of cute! I had some painting issues, having never used this brand of canvas before and the eyes are a little uneven. I took her into Photoshop and fixed what I could, added a butterfly into her hair, some background texture by Jewell and some text. Voila! She's not half bad! Of course I have to give her a name and I think Ginger fits perfectly! ;)
Next up...trying out Nichole's "Birds with Words" tutorial! Go check it out...her work is so inspiring.
Have a wonderful week everyone!
