Yay it's Friday and I have a painting to share for Paint Party Friday and well as an entry for the Summer of Color. I started this painting about this time last year and while I mostly liked it, I wasn't happy with her expression- she looked angry where I wanted her to have an air of contemplation about her.
So when I saw that this week's ice cream color challenge was Baseball Nut (a flavor I've never heard of BTW;)) and the colors were raspberry, vanilla and cashews, I thought this would be a perfect time to finish her plus use her as an entry for the Summer of Colors!
I added more shadows to her face and changed her mouth and eyes a little.....
and here she is from before.....
I might do a little more tweaking or maybe I won't....I kind of think she's finished now- what do you think?
I'm off to visit my friends at the parties now- won't you join me?
