Flow by Lady-Casanova Flow by Lady-Casanova
This is what happens when I begin to teach myself how to use oil pastels AFTER reading a tutorial.
It is a portrait of my friend :iconrodwen-eluthin: I decided to do after I realised that I did have more reference pictures (yay for taking a good camera with me!). She was leaning against a tree in the picture, so something had to replace it and she can remind me of a naiad (more specifically a Limnade, but who's counting?).

I suddenly feel very watery??

I can't say I was expecting to see my face when I clicked this link! :P (Hey, at least it wasn't the other tree photo you used. Did that one even work? I think it didn't.)

I agree with Ash, the highlights in the hair are fantastic. If only I had been wearing my mullet? And I love how the tree has morphed into water and curls down the bottom to the little swimming ... limnade? Lemonade?

Looks like pastels are your friends :D

Ha! Happy days of joy! (Well, Christmas didn't sound right, so I thought I would type something which sounded worse...)
I have all the photos of that day and thanks to the brilliance of the camera, all turned out as clear as day. :P

Oh, and pastels were not my friends before the tutorial. :P

Happy days of joy and joyness to you too!
Oh no, be damned digital SLRs! (Wait, I think it was, I can't remember :P)

Yes, what were not our friends before getting to know them often become the bestest imaginable. Funny that.
