Girl With Balloon Mixed Media Art

Time for something a little sweet!  I completed this girl in one long sitting, and I have a video of the process below:

I did not have a plan – just went in with oodles of different paints and started getting them down onto the canvas.  I varied my brush strokes and tools used, and also scribbled with different pencils to make random marks.

This girl was born by sketching right onto the painted background and filling her in with gesso.  Pencils and paints colored her and gave her life.  She looked like she needed a balloon (and then a crown) and so she got one! 🙂

More colorful paint and drips and marks were added.  She was given some shadowing with a charcoal pencil, and she was done.
