I painted this diva for a Secret Santa swap.


(that's a scan)

The recipient likes the work of Cassandra Barney, so I went for a similar feeling and style without trying to mimic her work. It is definitely inspired by her though, and I used the hairbow from one of her pieces for this one.

It's all acrylics and pencils on 6x6 canvas.  I hope she likes it! Cheesy

Here is the photo:

The color is more accurate here than in the scan.

I like this style, I may do more in it.  Opinions?

Thanks!

Thanks guys!  I'm just working back to painting after spending more time drawing lately, so I enjoyed mixing the 2.

it's almost like you're in a conversation with someone better than yourself--she's looking through you, only half listening...

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.

That fits!  That's why I chose her name...she's determined to be snotty/harsh/rude/sassy.  Some days I just feel like that. Wink
