Crowned in Pink

lady crowned in pink
was a fun experience
I learned a new way of painting from Adriana Almanza
I am taking her "Doll Dreams" class
we use two paint brushes
one to put on the color
the other to blend it around
not easy, but layer after layer and I began to get a bit of a feeling for painting this way

so fun to learn new techniques!

I have been on the road
wandering in the Rocky Mountains in Montana and Alberta Canada
summer is a beauty!

This was taken in Many Glacier, Montana
Glacier National Park

Big Eyed Gal for Sunday Sketches

her eyes beckoned
I leaned in to understand the feeling that permeated
and flowed from those eyes
a feeling so large
that I might succumb 
and be lost eternally to the depths of her view
her essence
my only choice was to step close
as though sliding into a warm pool of aqua water
immersing my soul in her fluid spirit

This is my first big eyed girl, 
I was concerned that I would ruin all the pencil work I had done by adding the eye lashes,
I was so happy that they turned out just fine!
I suppose practice will help me to feel more confident.

I forgot to take a photo while the above art was still a sketch
so that you get an idea
here is another big eyed girl sketch, this is how she began:
