THE SAINT



Here is a picture of my latest painting. The book pages were embossed using a diecut machine. Then I took some chalk ink and swiped it across the image so it would stand out. I have been practicing the shading technique I learned in Paulette Insall's faces class and I am getting more and more comfortable with what I am doing. I am also trying really hard not to be such a perfectionist with my work. I could take a week on one painting if I let myself. This one took about 5 hours which calculated to about 2 days. I have a son to take care of during the day so I do most of my painting at night. I hope you enjoy her. I will probably be listing her in my etsy shop soon. So stay tuned...
