MEDIA: marker, colored pencil, washi paper, origami paper

This piece was a fun new direction for me. While shopping at my favorite art supply store in Nagasaki, I saw a couple pieces of washi paper that instantly inspired me. One was metallic gold and full of swirls. This reminded me of curly blonde hair. There was also a piece of white paper with golden speckles (and a few silver speckles here & there), that reminded me of freckles. Using these, as well as silver washi paper for the background and metallic green origami paper for her eyes, I set about making an image of the pretty lady you see here. I worked larger than usual, and it was pretty fun to get out of my usual comfort zones. Since it's too big to scan, I took photos, so hopefully the one you see above looks okay. It's about the closest I could get. Since there's metallic stuff everywhere, it's very hard to photograph. I'll be working with washi paper more in the near future as I really love the look. I just bought several new sheets of crazy patterns and am excited to get to work!
