I am going to share a little portrait with you that went through a few transformations along the way:
Kate Thomson and is based on the first full scale painting she guided us to do. The title of the class relates to the fact that all the paintings are based on children and their connection to animals, and this particular painting was based on a story around a girl with a birds nest on her head.
Here is the first stage, including the nest, the whole thing was taken from Kate's example.
This is Kate's painting that mine was based on, you can see I took a rather different interpretation, though I applied many of the same techniques.
her Pinterest, so as it is public anyway, I think I can show it here too.
Anyway, I love Kate's original but as I am not really into the whole children with animals growing out of them thing, I decided to paint and draw over the bird's nest and add some further background elements, stamping and a sentiment, to my version, so that is how I landed up here:
I now think I should have left alone with the sentiment, but there is always a next time, live and learn as they say....
Well that's it, thanks for your visit like always and hope you will find some time to do something creative today!
Until next time
