A Party on My Head

   

   
 I'm about as far away from a party mood as I can be, but that's what I thought of when I finished this. 'There's a party on my head" .
This is mixed media, mostly watercolor, pencil and a bit of pen. 
 I chose to keep the face in pencil , and her clothes simple . 
 Not my style you say? Well you never know. !!!
P.S. I was asked how I came up with this...no, not my idea, but I'd seen something like it a long time ago.. a model with all colorful scarves on her head.. I've always wanted to do it ... I HAD to do it.!!! So I DID !!!! I have just added my second and final  version of this.

  9. What a fabulous painting BJ!!! I love the contrast between the understated clothes, the plain graphite face and the strong. bold colours of the headwear. Definitely a party going on there!!!
