Mixed Media on Arches Cover Paper
12" x 12"
(framed dimensions)
There were a lot of firsts for me with this painting - one of them being those water droplets. It took me a bit to figure out how to make them appear as though they were rolling off the skin rather than growing from it, but I think I finally got there.

In a word...STUNNING.

The pattern in the back is so perfect for water. Another great portrait.

Love this one. Really like the treatment of her hair and the pattern in the background.

This is really lovely Kathy. You have done a great job making the background feel like water, yet the girl is very solid.

That girl is my daughter Molly on a visit to Kath's family camp...and I am delighted to now own this beautiful piece as the perfect Valentine's Day gift from my husband.
