These very beginning pictures always look so...what do I want to say? Awful. Maybe that's too harsh...Bad? But it is what it is...the beginning. Certainly not the end.
Here she is transformed on my wall. I use this wall a lot because it has natural light coming through the door and because it's narrow there is less distraction.
and here is the finished piece...
a little wild...yet gentle and natural.
I layered papers in the background. When I do that I always paint so much over them that the original paper is nowhere to be seen...but the texture is what I like.
I still haven't named this piece...I am thinking "Jane" because she reminds me of Jane, the love of Tarzan.
