Cassie - Finished Painting

When I first showed you my sketch of this painting (which has since been changed a bit),  Scriptorsenex remarked that she looked like she'd be blond with blue eyes. Turns out, he was correct!
Meet Cassie or as Daniel called her: "Sassy Cassie."
I loved watching her appear on my canvas. There's something very special about her!
Cassie
8 x 10 inch painting on wrapped canvas
Available for purchase in my Etsy shop.

I am sharing her with the wonderful artists over at Paint Party Friday. If you haven't visited there yet, it's well worth it!!

And with that I wish you an excellent and creative day! I might be finishing my little still life today...


P.S. The pretty papers showing through, I bought here on Etsy.

  7. Gorgeous spirit she is..the colors are quite magical and vibrant and very striking color-harmony shining out..love it! I also love her shade of lipstick..for some reason it makes me think of a vintage sort of color..vibrant corals...the color gives me deja vu..how interesting!

  18. Wow, wow, wow! Today I cannot keep up with all your wonderful comments individually! Thank you, thank you!!

    I especially love all the comments about the hair - I am just now patient enough to spend the time on the hair so that it looks good. Hair was always an afterthought for me (sort of like my own) and I'm finally putting some effort into it. The blond color I got mixing yellow ochre with titanium white. And then a little burnt sienna for some lowlights and white for highlights.

    And yes, that red is fabulous - naphthol red! I love it!!
