Hellooooooooo :) Yep I'm still here ! As you know I've been having a hard time with my desire to be creative so I thought It was perhaps time I stretched myself and explore the limits of my artistic nature. Now It's a Loooooooong time since I've picked up a pencil and drawn anything and as for painting well past attempts have been a complete disaster !
I recently bought this beautiful book by Kelly Rae Roberts, just what i needed to give me the kick up the derriere, lol. It's jam packed with Ideas, beautiful to look at and inspirational to read.
So very nervously I'm sharing a peek of my first attempt at trying to create something in this style. I'm working on a flat canvas, about 6 x 10 inches, even though It's relatively small It's quite daunting for me. I decided to try oil pastels rather than attempting to paint with acrylics and use a brush, with the pastel crayons you can blend with your fingers and I thought I would find this a little easier to control.
It's far from finished, I still have colour to add here on her face and her hair and
hopefully If I dont completely ruin it, lol, I'll show you the completed canvas soon :)
Have a lovely weekend xx
