Bookmark: Painted woman


These days I am deep in experimentation with different medium and wanted to make something special for Terry's adult son Matt, who has returned to the unversity to study art amongst other things.
-
The idea came to me to make him a bookmark where I would attempt to paint a woman and only outline her silhouette and clothing in stitches. I wanted to give the feeling of oil painting by using watercolour.
-
Here is the finished product, but he won't be able to see it before Christmas. I do hope he gets a kick out of it.
-
Time to move on to another project for Christmas as tomorrow is already Thanksgiving. Can't believe how time flies when I am having fun.

She is lovely and I know that Matt will be tickled pink with it and I promise not to tell him or let him see it on your Blog.

I am delighted that you are experimenting and trying out new techniques and this one has worked really well, I look forward to seeing more

Terry,

I am more and more trying to do things a bit differently and trying new combinations. It just makes things more interesting than always doing the same old thing, at least for me. Of course you are a big source of inspiration to me in that department :-)
