The reworked mixed media girl on wood panel

April 2016
November 2018

It was a challenge to rework this particular mixed media girl I did back in April 2016 because she was done on a wood panel so you have to work with the grain of the wood in order for your colorants to show up.

I used acrylic paints for her skin and inks for her features. 

Then I went in with some Faber Castell gelatos and Prismacolor pencils for the details.

I also replaced the yellow flower with a white one and added a pearl trim on her ruffled top.

What do you think?

Ooh, gorgeous! I love them both, and it is so fun to see the evolution in your styles over the years. I think the whimsical nature of your earlier work is so playful and fun, and your realism now is just staggeringly beautiful! The depth you get in the eyes always just blows my mind!
