Mixed Media canvas/collage.:With DecoArt acrylics.
I decided to start learning how to draw properly. it was one of those random moments when i take a notion for something and no doubt it will pass when I realise its going to require actual effort lol.
Anyway i doodled a sketch an a wee 3 inch square notepad using a biro because I was too bored to go upstairs and find pencils and larger paper. I put a photo of Frida up and sketched my biro pen version of it... taking a photo of a small sketch gives you the opportunity to print it out in decent quality at a much larger size so thats what i did. I printed her out and attached her to a blank canvas then just started adding pastel colours, charcoals, chalks and acrylic paints. ended up with this... I am still working on it as I feel for frida and the way I feel about the mexican folk culture, that it needs more... more vibrancy and interest, so will be collaging more "stuff" on to it over the next few days.
Here is the original wee sketch.....
