And yet again, Stevie Nicks. Her tambourine and rose. A sense of the sun set in the background…with moon and stars.

Inspired by this bit of lyric from Stevie’s song “Gypsy”.

To a room with some lace
and paper flowers
Back to the gypsy
that I was
To the gypsy…
that I was

And it all comes down to you
Well, you know that it does
Well, lightning strikes,
maybe once, maybe twice
Ah, and it lights up the night
And you see your gypsy

8.5×10
Ink. Glitter ink used on finger nails, background, and feather.

    very,very good work, maybe a little busy but beautiful eyes and hands!

  • Thank you Tahnja. I like busy works, to me it draws your eyes not just on the central part of the piece but all over…less amount of negative space is like home to me. :) You know, I used to have such issues with hands…

    Fantastic !!! I lovvvvvvvve this- gorgeous detail, it really pulls you in- perfect colour balance too WOW xx

  • Thanks so much Anita. Makes me feel good to draw her…over and over again. ;) Kind of like Lynn sk…but Stevie was my first Muse and it is a shame I left her like I did. (I was in a bit of a panic earlier when i couldn’t find my inks…they were hiding behind some canvas.)

    My hand cramped on this one I can tell you! Especially on the hair.

    Hugs…I think we’ve all had issues with hands LOL…my daughter broke the mold on that one though, she loves them and draws them better than me!!! I must drag some of her work away from her and share it lol

  • Yes, I think you should share some of her work…if not actually uploading here…perhaps a journal. love your new avatar. Speaking of…you’re the new model in Bubbler Portraits…cannot wait to see what inspiration gives me for you. :)

    LOVE IT! Killer colors! You capture the gypsy essence of Stevie better than real clothes can! :) Now I’m rockin out to this song, one of my favorites!

  • Thanks Lynsye, told you there would be more Stevie. ;) I think it is every other piece I do. I want to raid her closet! All those dresses and shawls…

    Awesome news! I’m VERY excited to be the new model….yeah my new avatar! Thank you for noticing hunny…I took some more shots yesterday while it was VERY hot here and I really enjoyed myself. I have been studying more works such as Renoir….another great love of mine and I was trying some of his female portrait ideas which is why you have the avatar with me plaiting my hair from a famous Renoir painting hehehehe……I might upload those, dunno…they are more for future paintings

  • I saw those you uploaded…always interesting to see the inspiration for future paintings…no matter how far in the near future they are. :) I did finish my piece of you…and I saw 2-3 others in thr group have as well. Exciting to see what others come up with…Oh and you can submit self portraits as well. :)

    yes, I think I will have to work on something for that! Want to try something new and I have time, I think! lol…..if I can’t do something new I’ll add the last one I did but really want to work on a new piece

  • Fabulous! Either way, if you submit the last one…then that gives you time to create a new one without the rush of challenge dead line. :)

    Fantastic! I love that you kept her and her hair colorless contrasting with all the color around her. Also, the detail on her curly hair is fantastic. I definately think your work is taking on a new powerful dimension my friend! Congrats on the Feature!

  • Thanks Tammy. I actually just coloured the hair (digitally, thanks be to computers for that) just to see how it looked, didn’t want to do the original just in case I din’t like it. May upload the coloured just for kicks. I agree…the work now is not so forced I feel…
