Donna is done

She is finished! I guess like with everything, I could keep going and going, but I think that I will just give her the last coat of varnish. 11 x 15 acrylics and ink on watercolor paper.


For this afternoon, my plan is to work on something with lots of texture. Let's see how that goes!

  3. I have watched this progression & she is fantastic Martha, those bright colours really are a celebration of her music & life - the skin tones are perfect & I can almost sense a mirror ball just out of picture! I promise I will post some faces soon, I am tardier at posting than I am at completing the faces & that's saying something!! Thank goodness Memphis is whipping me into action ;)
