The Redhead Girl - another mixed media work that took forever.
I got the idea for her after I had sketched a girl's face with charcoal for the very first time that I later called "Girl with a crooked eye". I wanted a mixed media girl with that same haircut.
I adhered a book page, a part of a AAA map and a ticket to the canvas and painted it with acrylic paints. Outlined the girl, filled her in with Golden acrylics for face and hair, used India ink for more hair. Fabric for the shirt. Rub-ons, paper flowers, glitter.
Of course, like the charcoal girl, she is crooked - her face is slightly off. It took me forever to draw that mouth. I'm scared to do faces, and therefore I'm happy that I tried this one, even though it's crooked. I call this a girl with "lots of character".
I have to admit, I actually like her.
Please have a peek at the work of all those talented artists.
