I was finally able to paint yesterday! I have been building a deck with my dad for the last two weeks, which I must admit was kind of fun and .......a whole lot of work.

So I was so exited to finally have a day to paint. I did not even know what I was going to do, but I knew I was in the mood to paint an angel so here she is.

I have her listed on Etsy for now. I really do like how she turned out.

I used this painting book as a reference for body position. I love this book. It is one of my favorites to page through. My sister picked it up at the Library for me. What a find right! You know how they sell off the old books. This one might have been a whole dollar.
I always bring a few dollars when I go so I can come home with some old moldy smelling relics. The older the more interesting they usually are. I love all old books.

Your angel turned out beautiful. Gorgeous colors and love her expression.

I was looking at your angel and I thought it looked so familiar...and then I scrolled down and saw the painting of inspiration. I did a replica of that painting in charcoal in my drawing class. I like the story that is behind their expressions.
