Looking to the future....




After a long strange and stressful past month, I felt like painting something positive to put me into a new frame of mind. This started out like a bit of a doodle on canvas but I'm quite pleased with it. I tried mixing some oil pastels in there too with the acrylics and it was quite enjoyable.

Anyway here it is.......

I love it and it's really positive and bright which is how a future should be.

Well done with this one Nic. It has a definite 'positive' feel about it and I really love the little dots and circles, it adds something special to the picture.

Nicola! This is beautiful..I think the depth of this piece, and smoothness of her skintone is so lovely. I think you should be very proud of this piece.
Thank you so much for your stopping by my blog and for the kind words re: the illustration quest. I wish you all the best too in your endeavors...you keep on going! This piece is something to keep moving forward with!!
