IF Momentum and Tip for the Day


No matter what she did, Janie's hair had a mind of its own...

If you look at the previous post, you can see how almost everything is improved by a glaze of a single color--it unifies (or something). I glazed everything but the whites of the eyes with Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold, and I think it vastly improved Janie (though it didn't make her hair behave any better!)

I love Janie. She has MY HAIR!
Rarely a good hair day! But then what the hay? I like the gold very much and I enjoy how you explain what you are using and what it does.
I feel like I am taking an art class when I read your blog!
The face on this one is great.
She definitely makes me smile.

I really love your rich colors on your comps. Knowing little about acrylics, your tip on the glazing was helpful.
