I made this lady for a monochromatic collaborative journal, my color to feature was turquoise! 



Background is 2 canvas panels, and a random scrap of board.  I gessoed them and painted a wash of 4 turquoisey colors, then painted the form in acrylics.  All the stripes are strips of paper: art, scrapbooking, cards, even a few paint chips.  Those were collaged on.  I finished her with a bit of watercolors and colored pencil.


color is pretty true in that one.

And a scan, for detail:


opinions? 

Does the title fit?  I haven't decided....

The squares are canvas boards, 8".  The rectangle is a random scrap of wood (hubby salveged it when he worked for a cabinet maker last fall) it's almost 18" tall by 7 3/4" wide or so.  So, basically, it is about 18" square when set out.

Thanks for the compliments, ladies!  I'm not sure I'm completely done, I'll look at it again tomorrow to see...

I had to tinker a bit with her face, and fixed her.  Also, we got a NEW camera, so here is a much better close-up, and more accurate view of her true color!

Thanks so much!  I have to figure out how to mount it to frame, and if I can bear to part with her if I sell her.
