Iconic beauty

Today, VE day ,I post this mixed media girl which reminds me a little bit of the fashion in the 1940’s… particularly the head scarf. I did not have a definite plan when I started this project but I wanted to create a dress with a beautiful washi paper that was gifted to me plus a different tissue paper for the scarf. I painted over both papers to create texture and colour. Pastels crayons and acrylics plus collage made this painting a real mixed media girl. Gold gives an iconic feel to this project.
