ANOTHER PAINTING

Here is another painting I have just finished today. I am really liking painting on the black background and using the black as the outline. I think it really high lights areas. I also like using the technique of gluing tissue paper onto the canvas to give it texture and movement.

This is done on an 8"x10" flat canvas

This is very striking, lovely work!! I have recently started painting onto a black background and it's amazing how it makes you approach things differently. I've haven't tried tissue paper on canvas though what a great idea!!

Hi Michelle,
Well done on your latest design.
I feel you're heading in a different direction at the moment, more bolder!
I sat and looked at this piece for some time, feeling quite mesmerized.
Happy Painting,
Hugs,
Anna

She's GORGEOUS! The colours are very effective. I like that the highlighted area on the cheeks and chin seem to form a heart ~ :)

Love,

Thanks Nicola, yeah I love working with the black background. You should try the tissue paper it is realy good and gives it great texture.

Thanks Jennifer :)

Aww thanks so much Sophia. You are so lovely.

Thanks Anna. Yeah I feel like I am heading in a new direction. I want to do paintings that stand out and as you said be more bolder :)

Thanks Mum. I didn't really notice that before, but I can see it now.

My computer keeps cutting off, we are having many more people on the net with the new phones and the net room cannot take it. So hoping this message get through?
