  20. Hello and welcome Mikkamakka,
    lovely to see her through your eyes.

    Anno,
    Thanks for enjoying the proverb. I was working with a poem for her....
    but the poem seemed like it was for a drawing that I have not made yet...
    So I had to make a proverb up instead, thanks for enjoying both!

    Hello Amalia,

    An english rose, I can see this too. Thank you. The proverb came from her spirit~

  34. Love her! She is so sweet but with depth and intensity. The contrast of her eyes with the softness of the rest of the picture is wonderful. I think you should a large painting of it! Same colors, same everything!

  36. hello and thank you all for your lovely supportive comments. you all touch my heart and make sharing my art such a delight.

    Rosa,
    Hello,

    This piece as most of mine these days are done with prismacolor pencil- mostly the face and then acrylics for the rest. I do often add glazing medium to the paint which makes it translucent as well as go further, perhaps that is what makes it look like watercolor.

    with warmth,
    Tammie
