doing battle with my Angel


My shabby angel still in progress. I'm liking the final stages the best where I get to drip paint all over her. My new favorite color combinations are hooker green and copper. I used these two together in the background . The gold paint ontop was applied with a palet knife. I think her head is a little to big for the body. I tried to enlarge her hands a little as it is always a good guide the the hands should look like the can cover the face. I extended her elbows and made her a little chubbier. I have never painted someone with blond hair this is very rare, she was going to have black hair but I always do black hair ....I wonder why:)
And there is the Goth Angels to still do so I'll get to be in my comfort zone with dark hair and gothy themes.
Back to work for me....Love to get these paintings done before the year is out!!
