Portrait in Mixed Media Finished!
Yesterday I decided to finish this portrait. I added more color to her hair, because I didn’t like the dark streaks after all. Then I painted some Liquitex Irridescent Gold acrylics into her hair and on her back.
I also changed her eye color to blue, because I think her eyes stand out more with all of the turquoise surrounding her.
After that I used a small stiff paintbrush to dip into the irridescent gold and pulled back on the bristles with my thumb to splatter dots of gold in the background.
Lastly, I also added a little detail to her sea turtle tattoo. He has a hat on with the bill flipped back. He is a character I created a few years ago when I took the children’s book illustration course.
I can’t believe how many different types of art and writing classes I have completed in the last five years. It has surely been an adventure! I have had so many talented instructors and lots of encouragement. And I am filled with the joy of learning and growing.
Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀
