Art From the Heart, taught by the amazing Dyan Reavely. We learned several techniques to paint faces in a whimsical style, and Raylene here is the canvas I painted during the class.
Originally, the background of my canvas was a pale blend of yellow and the rust colour I used on her hair. When I got home, I took a good long look at it and decided I didn't like the background, so I've had a play about on the computer, trying various different colour schemes. I have decided that this reworked version in shades of blue is by far my favourite and am much happier with the result! I may yet get the blue paint out and risk repainting the original! :)
