China Girl with Eyes of Blue by 

Acrylic painting on canvas. This one was again inspired by a doll of Marina Bychkova’s, (Emerald) but also by David Bowie, and the lyrics of his China Girl song… I love that line “I’ll give you eyes of blue”… Sure sounds like some pretty words, but we all know it’s not true. Doesn’t mean we can’t be tempted ;)

I entered this in the Painted Ladies Storybook challenge, even though she isn’t a story book character, am sure she would be good for a tale or two. Like HOW she got the blue eyes ;)


lowbrow, cherry blossom, blue eyes, porcelain doll, china girl, chinese bob

Australian painter of winged whimsies; I love faeries, angels, mermaids, princesses, myth, gods & goddesses, cupcakes, colour…

I paint on canvas in acrylic mostly, but sometimes the watercolours come out for a less controlled splash.

    Wow Kim!!! Not only is she beautiful and the details are amazing….you caught a certain emotion in her eyes that is so striking!

  • Thanks Tammy as always xx Do you paint eyes first?? I always paint them first so when I am painting the rest, I feel like there is someone ‘there’. Maybe she’s wondering what’s with the blue eyes!?! ;)
