Wow!! Your detailing is so amazing Mandy! I really enjoyed seeing your process!
I have a question if I may...do you prime your wood panel with something before painting?
I'd love to see more!:)

Thanks so much for your feedback and kind words everyone. It's strange to stop and take pictures whiles I am working on a piece but it's even neat for me to see the process...I think 'ohhhh okay that's how I did that part', ha ha. Thanks for all the kind words. I'll be showing "Zuniga" and "Leda" in progress soon as well.

I love Freya and I LOVE her bird! So fascinating to see how the magic evolves. Thanks so much for sharing! I know it may seem like a personal thing for you but I enjoyed it.

My bunnies like Paul Simon too :)

How long does it take you? Looks very time involved. I love the look of the colored pencil over the acrylic. The crispness. Im trying to find a way to use colored pencils that would keep color under a glaze in pottery after fireing.

Seeing all these pictures makes me think maybe we should put them together in a video (slide show format). It would go nicely with your growing collection of art demonstrations... :-)
