Playing with Misty Mawn



This is another exercise from Misty Mawn's book "Unfurling"......i am enjoying it sooo much...this is her first book from what i have read......

this is done on a collaged background...... the portrait is drawn with a stibillo marks all pencil, colored with water soluble crayons, and then you use white acrylic paint to distribute the color.... boy that was a mouth full....if you don't understand, go buy the book.. lol ..i highly recommend it...

oh, i forgot to mention that one of the photos is color enhanced with my photo program.....the other is original....... misty's art is is very soft....i love it... ;-)
