Portrait in Mixed Media Finished!

 

Hello Friends! 

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! 😀

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: https://spreadingmy2wings.wordpress.com Thanks for visiting! :)
