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.
