The Parisienne

multi-media on paper
work in progress
This girl is destined to become part of a collage but I like how she looks now. She's larger than the ladies in the Little Women series - they've all been 6x6 and this girl is about 6x8 on a 12x14ish piece of canvas paper. I've had so much fun lately treating paper before I paint on it - snips of this and splashes of that - layers that create remarkable depth. I love these artistic detours. Hmmmm... she looks French to me.... cue Maurice Chevalier.

Great expression and placement on the page, also like seeing the bits of newspaper showing through the background.

I love your composition and yes, I also think she looks French! This is really nice and can't wait to see it finished. It looks so good now! :-)
