Guache portrait


Of Sunshine for Miss Stacey's summer school project 1. Almost didn't make it ... having been feeling ill since Friday ... but painting was actually a good way to distract myself from being ill. Not as happy with this as with my skin tone experiments, but hey ... onwards for the next project!

I really like the way you've chosen to crop Sunshine. Just enough information.

I understand the skin tone struggle...there seems to be a real magic to it. Nice job here!

I am perhaps being a little selfish by leaving a comment here that isn't about your art. But I just got your comment at my own blog and wrote a response. I never know if anyone would check back to the comments page...it's not exactly a thread. But I wanted you to get my response, so here's my link to it. http://astilllife.blogspot.com/2008/07/blog-post_04.html

Happy creating!!!
