If you saw my last post, in which I showed the beginnings of this piece,you will know that this little lady has been painted with my fingers rather than with a paint brush.
I used a brush just to put a couple of touches to the eye lids and eyebrows and a pencil just to outline the tip of the nose, the chin and neckline.
For this face I was influenced by the work of the talented artist Lynne Hoppe. I feel that I am guilty of being too 'precise' in my art work and I am striving to achieve a 'looser' feel. Painting with my fingers has basically forced me to paint in a loser style because you don't have the same control over where the paint goes.
But it didn't stop me from trying Lol!
I am linking this post to PPF although it is Thursday today because I won't have time tomorrow. I know that there is a theme this week of something party..ish for PPF's anniversary so I am sorry she doesn't comply with the theme but I hope you like her anyway.

I want to take this opportunity to THANK everyone that has left 'Get Well Wishes' for the recovery of my sore thumb. It has improved a little. x
