I am taking an e-course called SheArt by Christy Tomlinson. In it we learn how to make these cute little girls.
It is so fun to start with a completely blank canvas and just start to get MESSY!
Making the clothes and doing the shading is a stretch for me….it takes a little more detail and a little more time than what I normally like to do. But is it great experience!
The snowstorm was a little burst of inspiration….mainly because I made the girl too short for the canvas! So I had to think of something for her to stand on. I decided to go with a pile of snow….then made some snowflakes coming down.
The saying “She Felt Peace In The Midst Of The Storm” was one of the many prompts from the class. I hadn’t even read that one as I was making the painting. It just jumped out at me when I saw it – and decided it was a perfect fit for my angel in a snowstorm!
Funny how things tend to come together even when you don’t plan it all the way out!
