I just couldn't stop yesterday and had to finish her. With the underpainting I had shown you in my last post, done with burnt sienna and titanium white, the finished piece has such a richness in color.
There were a few areas that were sort of tricky like the hand (why are hands so hard to paint?!) and the ear, but in the end it all came together.
I feel so inspired to paint at the moment. I just can't stop! I need to be thinking about my next print project, but I figure a little break is not a bad thing - when it comes time to print again, I'll feel inspired... I hope!
I just love the colors in this one!
Fiona acrylic painting on 11 x 14 inch wrapped canvas available for purchase in my Etsy shop
I decided to enter her in this week's Illustration Friday exhibit. The theme is popularity. And somehow looking at Fiona, I am quite sure that winning a popularity contest was never on her agenda!
