It's Gone to her Head

Her coffee that is.



As mentioned in my last post, when she was a WIP, I have slightly adjusted the eyes and I prefer them now. I painted her in acrylics, and then used oil pastels, inktense pencils and charcoal pencil.

I am linking this post to Mix it Monthly were the theme for this months challenge is Cafe/Coffee.

Thanks for visiting. x

  10. Lol Fuzzy! I love her expression! I think she's juggling with those coffee beans. You could design a hat like that for Ascot. Brilliant! Love how you've achieved the full effect with all the different media, too. I have no experience of oil pastels.

    Thanks for your lovely comment about my book - I'm really pleased with how it turned out, even if the end papers are a bit lumpy! I look forward to seeing your new book, too. This one has been an interesting challenge, using all recycled materials (except the paint and metal embellishments which were in my stash, but at least I haven't had to buy anything to make it).

    Hope you are having a good week. I've had a couple of rough M.E. days but at least I've got another inch or two done on my knitting!
