After showing you the first few steps to complete a painting Michelle style,
I'm happy to share this next step:
Once all the paint has dried from the first two washes of color,
I go in with a pencil and refine the edges, add swirly details,
and give my characters some character (if you know what I mean).
I work through this stage pretty quickly before I move into the next step:
I've got a vast collection of materials to pull from: old piano music books, discarded book pages that have fallen out of their binding, and song music with words.
I cut and tear and rearrange until it feels just right...
Then I glue!
The very last step is coming up next, and this painting will be ready for sale!
Happy friday to you all!
