if you’ve been following me on instagram (close2myart)-
then you’ll recognize this piece i’ve been working on over the past few days.
quick sketch with black acrylic paint.
some color added.
MORE color added.
still missing the a lot of the details.
this piece of art will be used as a giclee and also a bag design in the near future.
it measures 24″ x 18″ x 1 3/8″
these colors make me HAPPY!
i’m thinking it could possibly use a couple of words in the red on the sides, any ideas?
maybe “sweet love” or “love captured”?
she is finally completed.
©2012 Michelle Allen, Bookworm. Acrylic, pencil and ink on wrapped canvas, 30″ x 40″ x 2.75″.
there are many layers involved in this painting.
more than i would have preferred to be quite honest.
there are many emotions involved.
also more than i would have preferred!
but in the end, i am pleased…
it’s actually the “bookworm” painting but it’s acted like a thorn in my side.
i have been working on this one on and off for YEARS.
seriously. like 3-4 years!
i’m not quite sure what the hold up has been with her.
maybe cause i loved her so much at the beginning i was scared of ruining her?
which is exactly what i did over and over again.
i can finally, and happily, say- she’s ALMOST finished (above)!!!
just a few final touches… in which i’ll show you tomorrow.
here are a few progressional shots.
be back tomorrow with the final reveal!
