magic clown wears a flower in her hat- 12x20 inches
i had fun with this one! i stretched pink canvas in an extra large embroidery hoop and did a loose drawing and underpainting leaving a lot of the pink to show through and then at the very end added silver studs to her eyelashes and colored rhinestones to the confetti.
she's in the works...but i think nearly done. i'm excited about the way she's turning out! i did a girl with a head full of sushi a few years back and liked her so much i thought i'd try a few more inspired by assorted international cuisines.
i got a fun assignment from my friend that is getting married soon. She'll have a table serving coffee and doughnuts and she asked if i could design some signage for the area. after some trial and error and decided on the sketch above. it looked more like the drawing in the upper left corner before i painted it. at this point i wasn't sure how i'd turn it into a sign but i thought it had potential.
next i scanned the painting into my computer. after many hours...more hours that it took me to do the original artwork:) photoshop has a way of doing that:/ i decided to give my friend two options. i sent the final design to spoonflower and in a few days i'll get a yard of fabric back. the picture is a bit cropped but the top section is two full rows of triangles that i will make bunting out of and the bottom portion can be hung or used as a table cloth.
i cut a new doll pattern...kind of delighted with the way she turned out:) the canvas that i used to make this doll was a bit heavy and it was nearly impossible to turn her horns right side out. the first picture was taken after she was stuffed and i'd sketched a rough outline in graphite on the raw canvas.
