A litle girl


adorns this butterfly canvas, thought I would attempt to create a child for a change.
I used a rose flower napkin for the backgroun, painted the face,arms and legs with acrylic paints and then finished face with c'arandache crayons.
The butterflies are a mixture of textured (the large ones) and K and Co dimensional ones.
I think I prefer to paint adult women rather than children but it was a fun exercise.

Time to see what else I can play with and to watch the rest of the Grand Prix followed by England v Japan (a warm up for the World Cup)

Thanks again for dropping by

Oh isnt she precious! I think youve managed to capture that innocence of a child very well in your painting. I love how it all flows together so beautifully.

I agree with trishbee--I think it would be hard to capture the innocence, but you did!
Love those dimensional butterflies too.
