First Journal Completed







I finished one of the journals I've been working on. I haven't painted facial features in ages, so this was a bit of a stretch for me. I prefer painting on canvas (especially more details), but I was happy with how it turned out. I experimented some with molding paste (on the skirt) and that was great fun! I loved incorporating texture into the piece. Now I want to take this further and start a much larger work on canvas.
