People I love

This month's "Paint What You See" class over at One Little House ning encourages us to make a background using "found" objects...

I used a collection of bottletops....
and other textured bits and pieces to build the layers of background.
 and then "found" my figure.
 I "pulled" her out of the background using soluble pencils blended with gesso...
 adding depth to the background with a rich red to give contrast...
 and a little more white to highlight sections.
 Black inktense pencil softened with a little water to add detail.
The journalling reads;
Falling ....or Escaping????
Take control of YOUR LIFE

This is my "Piece A Week"

Enjoy :D XXX
