Girly

OK, so switch my last illo to "spring" and I'll swap in this one for "girly." I was such a girly girl growing up, dressing up and ballet being my favorite hobbies of all time. Fun, fun, fun!

I sketched this out a few months ago and finally got it painted. I really like the way it turned out. This time I just used the pencil outline instead of outlining it in ink (since our new printer prints things out with waterproof ink, making my life so much easier). Also, I think I got the perspective right, but correct me if I'm wrong.

really lovely girl! I love so much your colors and shadows - those are so light and delicate! nevermind about ink is out i think pencil lines add much more 'living' effect to the watercolor textures.

What a delightful little gal. She has such character in both her laid back, relaxed pose and delightful face. Nice share. =)
