My Angel

She doesn't have wax on her yet, but here is my finished Angel Girl:

It's not my best attempt, but hey....it was fun and I like her anyway. I love using that Golden brand Gold Metallic paint. It's so perfect for things like this.


Here's a close-up:


I'm really tired of working on this cheap-ass wood. I wish I had got the Birch or just stuck with canvas. Even if it was those cheap Walmart canvases. For one thing it's harder to draw because the pencil wants to follow the grooves and cracks in the wood. It's not smooth wood like Birch. For another thing, I don't particularly love my girls to have cracks in their face....even if it does give them character. lol


I'm working on another girl already. I've drawn her, but no shading or color yet. I've also still got to draw the tree and birds. She'll be holding a bird up to a tree so she can be with her partner that's already waiting on her in a limb above. ;-)





Can you see her? It's hard to see when there's only pencil, I know. I think I'll give her pink hair. Or maybe purple or blue? Who knows, but it'll be a bit funkier than the other girls. Or maybe just black? I haven't tried a black-haired girl. Nah.....I'm going with funky colors. lol And maybe an oddball tree, too?? Don't know yet, but we'll see what my muse tells me. Wanna see my muse?



Here she is....


Hehe.....gotta have a sense of humor.

Bye all!

Okay, I love your angel, but I can't wait to see the new one all finished! I can already tell she's going to be my favorite. I vote for blue hair.
And sorry I can't mail you one of my strawberry tarts. I would, but I'm not sure how well that would hold up in the mail....
