Progression Pics

I'd like you to meet Emma!

She started out as a sketch while watching tv.......I love sketching while glued to the tube :)

And since I woke up WAY too early today (4:30 am!) I decided to start on her while guzzling coffee to make it through the day. I used thinned down acrylics.

I got this far before I decided to shower and head out to work.

Slow, rainy day at work so we were given the option to stay or leave.......guess what I chose?
Yep, I came home and painted some more!

Here, I've put on a watery wash for the background. Still wet......obviously :)

Here she is........almost done. Just need to outline and doodle a little.

Ta-da! Emma is good to go!

Have a great weekend all my wonderful blog friends!!
