These girls are my most recent acrylic creations. Last week I joined Heather Murrays group at http://thetroddenpath.ning.com/group/mixed-media-portrait-class. Love, love love her work. I was so inspired by her Tall Girl series I thought I would try some of my own.
The first was Gabby which is a beautiful young girl I cropped from a group photo from Flckr.
The second was Story. I also found her on Flckr. Somehow she just started looking alittle goth, so I just let her go there.
The third was Destiny and her dog. A friend at work wanted me to paint her daughter and her beloved dog. This is what I came up with. Destiny has been busy lately getting into mischief....because I couldnt place little horns on her head, I placed a crown on her little head. Destiny is always the Queen of her domain.
Last, but not least came little Annie. She is a work in progress.....almost finished with her. Just a few more details and she will be done.
Then along came Hope. She is acrylic on canvas. I think she is actually my favorite. I just love the look on her face....definately an old soul. This image was obtained from http://www.etsy.com/shop/VintageShowcase?ref=seller_info .
I have so enjoyed painting this week. Finally I think I am getting the hang of it. I was having a problem with the acrylics drying sooooo fast I couldnt blend. After purchasing alottttt of products, I am able to blend my colors and am having a blast painting!!
Tomorrow, another project for a coworker/friend.
