I have always had such a hard time working on small pieces. I've tried painting on ATC cards which are 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 and always have a really hard time. The bigger the substrate the easier it is for me.. I wanted to enter into this Swap at this Yahoo Group I'm in called Altered Design. The swap is to create an Angel or Devil on a Tag which is about 3x6 inches.. Bigger then than the ATC card but still pretty small.. Well I think I finally accomplished it! LOL I really took my time sketching so small and then painting my Angel with a very small Filbert Brush and Liner Brush.. This piece took a lot of time to do as I wanted to be very careful. I found drawing her lips the hardest. I must of erased about 20 times until I sort of liked what I had. LOL
Anywho I finally finished it like 6 hours later.. Well there were interruptions, like the dogs wanting out like a million times. The telephone ringing and that thing called taking time out to eat.. What a pain! ROFL!! When I start to paint I get so into it I hate to stop.. That is why I usually work in the wee hours but my family is onto me and their getting up with me lately.. I want to scream "Go To Bed NOW" but I hold my tongue.. well most of the time. LOL
I really enjoyed working on a Tag.. Creating the Background then adding my angel.. I might do some more of these for sure!!
I used Watercolor Crayons, Watercolor Pencils, Acrylics, inks, and Perfect Pearls. Perfect Pearls is a paint like substance that when you apply it it comes out like little pearls. I used this on her wings.
I'm joining Paint Party Friday this week and oh by the way I'm the Featured Artist this week. OMG I feel so shy about it! When I did the interview I was so big and brave but now it's published I'm like feeling so tiny and shy. Like a little kid wanting everyone's approval! LOL.. I don't know why but that's the feeling I'm getting... Weird huh?
Everyone have a wonderful weekend.
