Singing Lady

2015 April 8

I decided that I was going to re-create my “Singing Lady” so that I could frame it.  The first time I created her was in my Dylusions journal.  This time I created her on mixed media paper:


This version has some differences.  For me it’s almost impossible to recreate something exactly as the original version.  I used lots of stencils and paint to built up the background layers.  Absolutely LOVED how it turned out:


In my original version, I had her holding up her arm, this time I went for the easy technique of having her arms behind her.  And because the scale is a bit smaller than in my 2 page journal spread, it was a bit more difficult to paint her features.


Overall I love how this version turned out.  Now I just need to frame her!

Here is the “original” version: (blog post here)

I just realized that I created this journal spread almost a year ago – 4/17/14.  Doesn’t seem like it’s been that long.  And here is the “frame able” version again:


Love both versions and love that each is a bit different.  That’s it for me today.  Expecting strong storms this afternoon.  Hope everyone stays safe.  Until next time……

    I like the new one best.  I like her colors and the skirt and the fact that she looks a bit better proportioned. I do like the hair color on the journal one a bit better.  I think it's interesting to note how far your art has progressed in the last year.  Well Done!! Hope the storms were delusions of bored Weatherpeople and that you're enjoying a sunny and dry weekend.
