|Millie's Midnight Sanctuary|
mixed media on 9 x 12 inch birch panel
This makes number 90 out of the available paintings and drawings I have in my Etsy shop. Ninety! That's my cue. My cue to take a break. I am hitting the sketchbooks for a while. I am going to create just for the sake of it and I know it's going to feel great!
Millie was based on one of my sketchbook sweeties...tiny sketches in a tiny Moleskin. I really liked the long sort of messy hair in the sketch, but in the painting it just didn't work. So I sanded it off and there was the happy accident of the headpiece. It just seemed to go perfectly with her lacy gown.
For the detailing I used a white Gelly Roll pen that you can buy just about anywhere. I love these pens and use them a lot in my art.

Wishing you all the happiest of weekends. Maybe I'll be back Monday with some fun sketchbook work. Thank you for your visits and comments...they mean so much.
