Playing with color...

My Sea Girl needed some color. I made a photo copy on some thick card stock and started playing with the acrylics mixed with some liquid pearlescent paints. It is hard to see the pearlyness in the photo but it is really pretty. I was a bit heavy handed with the color so next time I will thin it a bit. I have a new set of pearly watercolors on the way to play with... Of course Magnolia wants purple hair now and why wouldn't she!

Aww she looks sweet.. funny how color can make a difference. or the color used... bet if u used dark colors it would give her a sinister look... pastels are inviting.

Oh! It would be fun to do a study like that with various color themes on the same image! Thanks for the great idea!
