Over the past year, I've become friends with a lovely Swedish Artist, Camilla. After my #collaborative pieces with Sharon Tomilson and Annie Hamman, we spoke about doing a piece together. And on Monday, I received this sweet piece from Camilla. I was blown away and felt nervous about it too.
I love the idea of collaborative pieces, it keeps you on your toes, ever challenged and working on difference pieces.
Not only that but it certainly makes for interesting stories, of sending and receiving art from all around the world!!!
I loved what Camilla sent me and decided to continue experimenting with my acrylics on this piece.
So I started playing with my charcoal and a monochromatic palette
and started to try bring her to life....
I wasn't sure how to move forward and was feeling rather unhappy with her hair.
Before I went to bed, I added some color and I took my charcoal and added
some squiggles to help her hair find movement.
This is where I have ended tonight...
I am loving her hair and dress!
She's rather sweet... I am thinking about adding some
mixed media down the side...
More to follow.
Thanks Camilla - loving her so far!
