Girl and a Sheep

Girl and a Sheep

Girl and a Sheep - side view

I actually tried my hand at this ‘layering’ business. I’m pretty pleased with the result!

The idea for this painting started when I found a bunch of slides and wanted to do something with them. I sketched the girl and sheep when I was on holiday in Wales (how appropriate).

Materials used (LOADS! I’m sure I can’t remember all): Slides, plastic embellishments, acrylic paint, Mod Podge, scrapbook paper, tissue paper, beeswax, embossing powder, stickers, thread/wool

  1. What a great backgroud! I am a little behind and still working on shading faces and can’t wait to start practicing backgrounds. This one really turned out nice!

    Take care and keep creating nice things! 🙂

    Iris: Thank you Roberta! I did this before starting the class, so I’m practising a lot on doing faces and shading now so I can get better.

  2. It’s beautiful, great background!

  3. Love this!
