January Girl Mixed Media Painting


January weather has been cold and snowy for a few of days, which meant a couple of days home from work. So I had a little extra time to paint. I am calling this one "January Girl."

This is definitely a mixed media piece - acrylic, charcoal, India ink, oil pastel.  I love the smudgy softness you can get with the oil pastels.  The background went through about five iterations before I ended up with this and it felt right.

I hope you have had a creative week whether it's been snowy or sunny in your part of the world.
