With Polka Dot Bows


In honor of my birthday I decided to make something a little different. She is on a wood panel, measuring about 11 x 14. Done with acrylic, and graphite. I made this painting for a friend, I hope he likes it. I think she has sort of a folksy feel to her. I haven't painted with acrylics for a while now, I feel torn between painting in watercolor and painting with acrylic. What I create with these different mediums seems to change as well. My watercolor paintings are more whimsical, while the acrylic lends to a more serious painting......hmmm, I need to explore this a little more....

I hope you are having a good week!

She is wonderful - I think she has a certain quizzical look about her. I love the play of colours and lose feeling that you have created with the medium you have used. Your friend will enjoy her and find many conversations to have with her. Oh - and happy new year to you.

First of all, let me wish you a happy birthday! I'm the same with acrylics and watercolours. My acrylic paintings are much more serious than the watercolours, I've no idea why but it;s interesting you feel the same. :o)
