Well, this was a lot of fun. I ripped off the canvas on this frame and replaced with a material from an antique shop I found for $10. Then I rabbit skin glued the fabric to seal and tighten up the canvas. Painting on it was a little difficult tbut I painted straight on with Gesso.
After that I put a little opaque into her skin tone and then glazed , glazed , glazed with oil paints. I really loving the effect of the backgroun coming though her skin. The hat on her hair is from a hair magazine. Its actually hair that is shaped into a hat.

UPDATE: I have added a bird to her shoulder…I thought she needed a purpose and now she has something to love her. She is the Lady Hawk and now she is totally Cool.

    Fabulous, Belinda!!! I think my favorite of yours to date. The hair is “to die for, darling”!
    Colors are wonderful! The eye, fantastic. And yes, fabric showing through the skin is fantastic.

  • Thanks so much, I’ve decided to add a bird this week, so it will be changing. I think a blue or purple red bird….what do you think?
