She Art week 2


so its week 2 of Christy's She Art Workshop...and the challenge this week was to tackle creating background scenes...all i'll say is...i had a go!!! lol


i was delighted with my decision to add a large balloon...and i think the pp worked really well with paint for the trees...

i struggled big time with the sky...and i still don't like it...but i really do like how the clouds turned out after had the idea to smoosh them with Liquid Applique :) realy fluffy clouds!


perspective has never been my strongest point...but i tried to create a flower meadow disappearing off into the distance...i tried!


my favourite bit of this canvas has to be the girl...i love how she turned out...and the fact that my mum even recognised her!!! :)
i'm still not sure about where to go with the faces on these girls...last week, no face...this week a basic face...next week i might go wild and paint a whole face...who knows??

This is beautiful. I love the clouds and the flowers. You are very talented, love the colors and the words you used also. This SHE ART is everywhere, too bad I found out too late.
