11/04: Niña - Grounded!

Have had another busy couple of days but at last I found time to 'ground' this young lady - I opted for a very simple dark floor with a bit of shadow to the left of her feet as the light was coming from the right side

Yet again its raining and gloomy so the photos look a bit patchy but this is the final version now (you'll be pleased to hear)


I'm going to stick with the ivory mount and 'rustic' grey wood frame I think.    This is the mount just laid loosely on top.  I have got larger mounts/frames but I think the pictures will end up too large - this is 20" x 16" frame which is a reasonable size for hanging I think.

Yep, that did it, Sue. It turned out beautifully and will make a wonderful entry into any exhibition you enter.

Yup, looking good Sue. Good luck with it.

Simple solution and it really suits the painting. And wow what a good result and how great to indulge in using red

Thanks Ladies. I'm really impressed with how well Polychromos pencils work on film ... the reds were pretty vibrant from the start without the need to do lots of layering.

I'm pleased she's finished though .. got a couple of Indian characters I'll probably work on next although it would be nice to get back to furry subjects too .. and I do have a cat to work on before Summer.
