Here's the start of my latest piece...the paper/background is actually white. I took the picture indoors, and at night, so it has a yellow cast to it. I actually like it yellow too. It makes it look vintage...but as white it looks good too. It's also a bit fuzzy.. My sister, Dolly, sent me a page from an old Victoria magazine that she said looked like a girl that I would paint. It was laying on my art table for a few days...and then spoke to me. I had a vision. And I think you might be surprised as it progresses which way it'll turn. I get these visions of things completed sometimes...and this is one of them. I'm very excited about it!
I should have more posted tomorrow...and you'll see how she transforms!
