Inspired by a doll

A doll is the subject of my mixed media painting today. I love  her fancy hair and attitude. I  painted my own version of a doll using paper collage to dress her up. Gesso added texture to the background.I kept a limited palette to unify all the different elements.

Baby bubble bath

I used lots of different techniques to achieve the bubble bath effect.

The baby was painted with gouache and the rest was made with different paints and gesso, plus the bathroom wall was done with washi tape and acrylic. I loved the fact that the chubby baby had only one tooth. I worked with 5 photo references and created a new scene. Super playful !

Mixed media girl

I received for Xmas lots of mixed media art presents… I played with them straight away like a child full of excitment with its new toy…The result after many layers of different types of  paint  is  a rather beady eyed wood fairy girl….more to come in this new style.
