good morning friends!
i want to thank all my new followers and the
sweet comments you have left on the last few posts!
i truly appreciate all of you!
i want to make it over to all of your blogs...
maybe since it is only 5 out this morning,
today will be a good day for that!
i have had a few people ask me about my process
of my paintings here and
on my facebook page.
so today i thought i would share one of my paintings.
i have a few different styles and this is just one...
this one i am doing on 100% cotton 140 lb water color paper.
first i draw out the scene...
i just use a 4b pencil.
i then started to add some vintage papers...
i love using vintage wallpaper, music sheets, dictionary pages, etc.
i do find a lot of these at thrift stores.
next i add color to the background.
i use golden fluid acrylics, pan pastels, and soft pastels.
just keep building color on the background using acrylics.
for the face i use shiva oil paintstiks.
love how smooth they are...so much easier to use than regular oils...
in my opinion anyway!
for the details i use a white gel pen to doodle around the face
and other places....like the halo here.
i use a black and white stabilo pencil to do the scene ...
this pencil will write on anything.
and it is water soluble so i can add a wet brush to
it to make it look like a watercolor.
and here is the finished painting.
if any of you have more questions...please ask!
i will try to get them answered.
