    suggestions? suggestions?

    Keep spinning the art!!!

  • Ha ha izzybeth, I reckon this is the rough draft, but might be careful to keep it this way. I end to stay loose ;Its almost like not finishing a painting.
    That what it feels like to me. You only go half way and then you stop? I might do that and just fix up her arm and skintone and make the flowers white. Ot a couple of them whilte. Fix the hair aver her shirt. and maybe dot the eyes….still heaps to go…but looks good on computer.Thanks for your encouraging comments. Its what this girly needs to get her back into the studio space. b

    it’s great…the cat already has more detail than the girl. I can see more going into the face and eyes and the hair and lightening up the flowers might help keep them a bit separate from the other elements. beautiful cat, I like the way it is looking down. It has seen something. You know what you are doing!

  • Thanks Soxy I like the comments and I am going to bring the flowers out by making them white daisies with a touch of yellow from behind. Plus will tackle the hair after the dress has dried. Thanks I love your comments. B

    Funnily enough, this is just what my cat and I were doing in my garden, I often go to sleep with my head resting on her, hidden among the flowers in our garden. This is so beautiful, you’ve captured the wonder and mystery of Alice’s imagination.
    GORGEOUS :D xx

  • Thanks Julia, I did a little more today….so whats your cat look like. Post a picture here on my page…show us your kitty kitty, this cat is actually called Kitty Kitty and he is the fattest cat. I have 6 pets and he is the KIng.
