Pink Snow...summer of colour

Her is where she sits in my house, with very bad lighting and my dodgy phone camera...lol...

So...far removed from what I usually do, well from what I have been doing for the summer of colour, but I must admit I did enjoy doing this...Yes, I could point out to you all the imperfections, but that is what makes it mine..lol...

The wax that I used was a pupleish birthday candle...I went around the outside edge of herand highlighted some spots...the highlighted spots are the quite deep puple ones...hard tpo see over the top of so much texture...she is on an inch and a half thick, 15 by 15 inch canvas.....

Thanks Kristin...I am not a pink painter but I did enjoy splashing texture paste and other bits and pieces all over her...

thanks for all the wonderful comments you have been giving me..it keeps a girl going...and I am certainly looking forward to seeing all your wonderful work again IN PINK!!!

until next time
lots of it
Mandy

For not being a "pink" painter you sure hit this one out of the park! She is gorgeous! Her eyes speak to me and the whispy texture just adds to her mystery...

I think this is my favorite piece of yours so far. She is beautiful - I hear on the pink thing I'm not a fan of it either. Great work!

This is so beautiful I love the way you incorporated texture into the painting.

Mandy,

Your words meant so much to me during my trial yesterday. I had another 24 hour migraine and I kept thinking about what you said and that it was OK to be down for awhile and just rest.

You made it a bit better.

Wow, she is really gorgeous. I love the texture of it. She has a great face. You could make this into prints and sell it. Very lovely!

Jen @Sadie Inspired said...

This is so beautiful...especially for someone who doesn't usually use pink! The texture is so yummy too. It is funny how we can see all the imperfections in our own work...but others can't. I love her! :)
