Looking Around - mixed media figurative

I slathered acrylic paint on paper pretty thickly, then drew with a General's Peel & Sketch charcoal pencil, and worked over that with oil pastel.  Kind of a quick, frantic piece done from one of my old black and white drawings.  Oil pastel works so great over acrylic - really just glides over the surface.  On 9 x 12" Strathmore acrylic paper.  Thanks for stopping by!

Interesting mixed-media... love the suggestion of a 'killer heel' on her right foot; clever touch

A fun thing to do - really glad you liked it, John!

Gosh, you're so good with proportion. I want to know what she is turning to look at! xoxo

Hi Aimeslee - Thanks for your nice comment! She was turning around to talk to someone behind her. I scribbled quickly as she was turning - one of those lucky moments.
