Natures Goddess

This morning I was determined to finish a pencil sketch I had started a couple of days ago.  I just had the basic features on the page and was trying to get myself to complete the shading.  I started shading with my graphite pencil and hated it.  So I erased it and picked up a colored pencil in yellow okra.  I finished her in colored pencils in yellow okra, light flesh, burnt okra and dark brown.  Image

As usual I could see things wrong, but was very pleased over all.  Especially with the shading.  So I posted her on 29 Faces in 30 Days.  Then I started her background.

Image

The background turned out just as I had it in my head.  I had to clap my hands I was so excited!  I sprayed with some of my home made paint sprays, glued on some paper with leaves on it, and added more background leaves with a home made stamp and vintage photo Distress Ink.  Very pleased with myself today  🙂  Now what’s for tomorrow?

Sending hugs and smiles
