Just a quick sketch in acrylic and pencil. Not really a finished work.

Not quite sure exactly what I was trying to achieve with this one. Regardless, it's got some nice gradients, and it's inspired some thought on my part on the interplay of colour and texture with mixed media. There might be some more random experiments like this in future.

Yes, people mistake her for Angelina Jolie. Nope, it's not her. As for those who ask if it's me... it might be me. It might not be. "Russian Girl" is a play on words.

Lols. I was thinking she was Jolie there too. Well, she did act in SALT as a Russian rogue agent. I love this drawing. It's beautiful, even as it is! Still, having hair is always nice :)

gorgeous, love the highlights. It's funny, it doesn't look like acrylic at all...you're good :D

The gray was fairly watered down, and put over the top of a rough pencil sketch.

Thanks!

Makes sense, it's a great effect. I think I'll have to try the technique now!
