This piece started life as a magazine page, which I adhered to a canvas with gel medium.  I then used a combination of gesso, acrylics, and colored pencil to alter the original image.  Very little of the original survives aside from the pose.

That's a really nifty technique Smiley
I love the image; she reminds me of Ursala's human form in Disney's The Little Mermaid (I think it's the necklace.). Very pretty!
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, everyone!  This was such a fun technique.  I'll definitely be doing more.  Smiley

Asheri - LOL!  She does look a bit like Ursula.  Maybe I was subconsciously inspired.  Tongue
