A CC Gal

I created another Cotton Candy Gal last night.. She was soooo much fun to do. First I took a book cover and slopped a lot of Gesso on it and then went to town doing the background. I drew her on a piece of paper and worked on her while my background was drying. I was wondering if anyone knows what to seal this painting with. Do you gals use Varnish on your pieces or maybe matt medium? If anyone knows can you give me a shout..

Natasha May is the originator of the Cotton Candy Gals

I had taken her Workshop a few months back and it was extremely good.

I learned a lot about shading and blending. which of coarse you can't see here because of my Lousy Camera I'm always whining about. LOL

I'm joining Paint Party Friday this week.

Going to hop over their to see all the Fabulous Work that has been created this week.

  7. She's so much fun! Love how you have her popping off the background layers- really brings the eyes to her!

  8. Lovely girl. I like that little bit of hair over her shoulder. I always seal my paintings with matte varnish, and if it's in my journal and I want to seal it for some reason I use matte medium.

  9. Your Cotton Candy girl is adorable! I can see how making Natasha's girl can be addicting. :)
    I usually spray my canvases with a matte spray varnish. But I don't use anything in my journals typically. I wonder if I should seal those too!? Have a happy rest of the week.

  10. Love her! These are my fave colors. :) I seal my paintings with acrylic varnish spray. I guess matte medium would do the trick as well but I sometimes find that it's sticky.


Thank you for taking the time to Comment. I so appreciate it.
