I created this background on a Canson Artboard using a paper collage layer, followed by some acrylic paint, gesso, texture paste, and stabilo pencil. I added the flowers and sentiment at the bottom as a secondary focal point. When the background was completed, I sketched these vintage-looking girls onto the board, and then painted them using acrylics and charcoal pencil. I finished the piece off with some stamping of those little bubbles in the background. My thanks to Jeanne Oliver for the inspiration for this piece – I had a blast!
Here are the process videos for the background, and then for painting the girls:
I hope you enjoy watching this process – in the meantime, Go Make Some Art! Bye . . .
