The Birth Story of a Painting

 

On this painting I mostly stamped and painted the background.  Usually I add more collage.



Next I added flowers, face and hair.  I made swirls at the top with the end of my paintbrush before the paint dried (love how the purple shows through). I added touches of color around the edges and inside the paisleys.



 Finally I added details to her eyes, face and neck. 
Voila, she's finished!

    I love your style of faces - they're so sassy and full of personality. And the detail around the eyes match her necklace, clever..........

    Cheers, lady!

  5. Glad you enjoyed it. I thought it'd be fun to post steps since I enjoy seeing the creating process from others; whether it's writing, art or crafts.

    Tara, I won't forget. He said it'd be a few weeks because he had to set up an area for me. :D
