Artwork Description

this is actually an equal mix of acrylic and watercolour, so i didn't know which medium to put it under. I used acrylic as a substitute for watercolour because im too cheap to buy new tubes Wink.
i used a rather limited palette for this picture
acrylic: crimson, cerulean blue, mars black.
watercolour: quinacidrone rose, yellow ochre, lamp black
inspired by Malice Mizer

amazing work, esp. on the expression, mood and detail. I'm dying to know how you did the stray hairs on her right (our left) shoulder, they fall beautifully and give a great sense of realism, did you use a really fine brush or...? also what are the dimensions of the painting?

She has such lovely kissable looking lips *mauh* yep. The roses in both her hands and on her dress are VERY well done. I also really like how you've highlighted her hair.

thanks Miss Palmer!! the only reason i use acrylics is that i want to use watercolour but im way too cheap to buy new ones and besides i have acrylic which actually can substitute for it!

Beautiful blend of wet and controlled watercolor - I have never tried mixing acrylics in but based on this stunning work I just might! The roses are luscious!

This is so cool, Kay! I did'nt know you had a gallery at Epilogue. Coolio! This piece is really good. The clothes, roses and her expression seem so real.
You rule, Kay!
