Enchanted

It's Friday again - we're ready for the party!


So this week I did something similar as last week - I made a sketch first of this girl with the flowers growing all around her. Then I took the sketch and transferred the girl onto my canvas that I had covered with papers and then painted over with fluid acrylic paints.


Although it is the girl from the sketch, she looks different on the canvas, especially after I filled in her face with watercolors and pastels. I am currently working on the flowers and see what else I want to put into this painting. I've called it "enchanted".

This weekend you can see lots of art made by wonderful artists - all you have to do is going over to Paint Party Friday where you'll find a long list of these talented people. It's always worth a visit.

She looks more mature in the transition to canvas...I cannot explain that any further! Love the name it suits perfectly!

Very enchanting WIP! It almost looks like the flowers are growing out of her. Looking forward to seeing more.

Nice! I especially like the sort of William Morris border on the right side.
