Started with a really messy background, then added a piece of smooth paper that would eventually become her face.
Drew a really rough sketch of her face, body, and hair. Then, I painted her face with a mixutre of Shiva Oil sticks and PITT pens (links below), and painted her hair with fluid acrylics. Added a bit of yellow paint to the background.
A bit more definition to the sketch lines, some gesso to her neck, and experimented with some stripes toward the bottom.
Filled in her dress with white, collage the bottom of the canvas, and added a little collaged birdie.
Finishing touches include the stamped words, collage elements (wing and flower), white dots, and bit more paint to the background. I love what I do!
I shared more about the meaning of this piece in my recent post about my joy-filled spiritual awakening. Head on over

Thank you guys. I hope you enjoyed a peek into the process!
