Drawing freehand is difficult for me, and the human form is challenging for me to render exactly. I used an old canvas with a painting that really didn't come out well. and started with a base of white gesso, and then proceeded to add arcylic paint, alcohol inks, stamps, and acrylic silk glazes. My painting is 2 feet by 18" in size and I put her in a short dress of my own design. I like the bootilicious look.
I also liked adding a distressed edge to sides of the painting. I cut strips of paper, which I secured with old brass nails and glue. It just really has a put together look that I'm going to complement with some other haloween crafts that I'm making for the front foyer.
