Pink-Very Pink!!


This is for the summer of color week 3, pink week, over at twinkle twinkle......

There is a story why i did this portrait "sketch style"...... i just received Misty Mawn's book, unfurling, and in it there is an exercise where you sketch with a "stabilo marks all" pencil and then you soften the lines with a brush and water....then you can use color. i used water soluble wax pastels.... this was the first one i did and i decided that i would use the color pink and use it for the week 3 at twinkle twinkle...

Love it Janie!--of course I have the book, and of course I haven't even touched it yet--I wish I had more hours in the day!

She is lovely and has a far away look in her eye. I like the flower as well, nice touch.

I love all your color-themed portraits. This one is lovely... probably a hair shade that my daughter would like to have (if I allowed it).

She is so wonderful! I LOVE her! We are on the same page - just got Misty's book and am trying to incorporate some of her ideas into my art too!

I was looking forward to your piece this week and as always, she is just stunning! You inspired mine this week, just so you know ;) I want that book - I met Misty at an art retreat (my first) years ago and she is so kind and giving. I love what you have done with your new inspiration, xo

oh wow, that is a more sketched look, and it is great! Different feel from the last ones. Interesting how a different material does that. This is soft and lovely. It is a look I know.
