Well Cocky!!

I was a bit sad about not being able to help Charlie and Lucy(the two oldies I wanted to adopt), but the universe had other plans....
Meet Roo :D
She is an old lady of 12, but someone forgot to tell her and she thinks she is about 5 lol. A huge fluffy bundle of energy who is really helping me get out more. A little unsure about giving affection, but a fast learner so we are getting along fine.
Now back to some art...
I thought I was going to be at a loose end when Soul Food classes finished, but I have this large/thin pallet I wanted to paint on.
 I decide it would be the perfect project to try out all the new techniques I have learnt. I gave it a quick coat of black gesso...
 followed by many different layers of numminess...
 before picking out this cheeky chicken for my kitchen wall....
but I didn't like it!
Well that's what white gesso is for right?
 And then this cocky chap showed up :D
 Still many layers to go, but feeling much happier with him :D
(but not as pleased as he is with himself lol)

As to who Harriet will be going to live with, Hortense chose...
Thank you everyone for your lovely comments about my dolls <3 p="">
Enjoy XXX
