WIP ~ Finis!

            Finished above,  and below as I was working on it.
I may enter this in the art show at our Strawberry Festival that comes around late Feb.  It's in a 16x20" frame , not permanent yet. Although I have trouble with google blogger uploads (right now) I managed to post this using Picasa... BJ

                                   
                                       First Wash. I always do the face first. If that doesn't come out well, no sense in going on, but I was ok with it.
                                       
                         A little further along refining the facial features and a start on her hair.  


Starting to put in the costume, and working on her braid. She is wearing a huge headress that sits upon the head.

Signed it here, but tweaked it a bit... There are many more steps in between not posted.  Also my photo is a bit pale. Click on any photo to see detail . Thanks for looking.

  3. Wonderful portrait. So envious of people who can paint faces. I find it so difficult. I am having trouble with downloading pics on my blog and so is laura Moore. It's very frustrating.

  5. That's a beautiful drawing, the facial features are exquisit. I, too, am unable to upload pictures from my own files. I haven't been using Picsa, I guess I'll have to if I want to get pictures on my blog. I'm so glad it's not just me!

  6. Wow BJ - this is stunning and you most assuredly should enter it in the art show. You are super! I too had to upload through Picasso - glad to know others are having the same trouble. Maybe e-blogger is not working properly - thanks though for taking the time to share this. Hugs Debbie
