Finally some time to paint and play. I modified a Kelly Rae Roberts technique and used some old letters and post cards I had been saving for the background, then applied gel medium and layers of paint before painting the girl.
I like the way it's coming along. The background is muddier than I'd like, and I'm still very hesitant when I paint faces. I'm not 100% in love with this one, but I like it enough and most of all I was glad to get a chance to spend a whole day with the art supplies out, a friend by my side, goodmusic playing, and the rain coming down outside.
