So, the girl below is based loosely on the things I learned in a Suzi Blu course called Petite Doll. Don't like my completed version, but I learned lots.
DLP Week 35 Challenge: Draw, paint, doodle a face. Done. Took forever to do it, as it was completely out of my comfort zone, and my expectations were too high!
I started with a sketch of my daughter in a sun-hat.
4 things I wanted to capture in this project:
--NINE freckles on her nose
--her gorgeous long, flowing blonde hair
--her happy child-like expression
--her brilliant green, soulful eyes
There's so much I want to learn yet about creating dimension with color. Tried to add lots of yellows to her hair. Not crazy about the sharp black lines I added...
I used a color scheme I haven't used before: baby blue, orangey-yellow and a warm purple. I really really like it! It all started with the Gelli-print I used for the background of the girl. :)
Added more dimension to my oft-used bubble theme. I am really happy with that.
Thanks for stopping by.
