So So Beautiful, I just love this image so much! The soft skin tones are wonderful, all the colours blend together to make the arm and shoulder so excellently, even though they aren't very flesh coloured. The shape of the body and the execution of the face are so perfect and the abstract hair is just the bomb. The two layers of the image are really working well in helping the keep the image from getting muddy.
All in all, the whole image is just perfect.

Spent some more time with this piece, wondering how you achieved the different looks/cool effects? If you care to share, what is done on the plexi and what is on the wood? Is the Plexi over the wood?

hey there.. i'll share with you the same answer as I gave the guy below u: there are two layers.. the girl's face and arms are painted onto the wood with acrylic.. the yellow hair and watercolor effect is acrylic on plexiglass, layered over the wood.

Thanks. I see it now. Many years ago I experimented with multiple layers of plexi (you can see them in my gallery in a folder titled "Layered Paintings"). What I did was mount them in shadowbox frames and put spacers in between the layers. This gave an additional effect of casting shadow from the upper layers onto the lower layers. Since I have moved around I haven't found a place that will cut a big piece of plexi into the sizes I want... might try it again some day...

Is that watercolor on wood? I was thinking of trying that sometime. Is there anything special you need to do to prep the wood?

This is beautiful! It should be a DD!

You're stuff is so crazy cool, do you have a specific inspiration? Or is your imagination just unfair?
