Ready for Adventure – Experiment

“A work of art is above all an adventure of the mind.” – Eugene Ionesco

I created this girl with a bright red shirt, but her original “skin” fabric seemed too pale. I added some color with colored pencils and a bit of water to rub the color in. The experiment worked, sort of. She has some color, but her rosy cheeks a bit too rosy and there is no going back after I used the water and heat set it. I enjoyed trying something new – but I might have a lighter touch on the cheeks next time.

She’s ready for an adventure (7” x 12”)
