More Mixed Media Paintings

Happy Thursday! I have been drawing and painting still and learning so much. Last art I shared focused on darker skin tones  so this time I wanted to try lighter ones. I was mixing away those colors. Some trial and error before I found natural looking tones.

Take a look! Which one do you like?

This was my first one. I love the white flakes I added.

She looks nice and tan.

I was inspired to create this one from Donna Downey art on her website. Love the wild, free hair.

I wanted to try a face with glasses and love it. Here hair came out great, too.

I love the bubbles. I added a little blue to them to add dimension.

Thanks for stopping by!
