La Beaute Mixed Media Girl

Now that I'm off work for the summer, I finally had a chance to get back into my studio and finish this painting that I began over Spring Break. I call her La Beauté. 

Ma Beaute Mixed Media Girl - Art Chick Studio

She was created with watercolors, Neocolor II Crayons, Zig Brush Markers, and a hint of acrylic paint pens as well. I was inspired by Alphonse Mucha and his beautiful art nouveau portraits of women. I know that's not obvious in my painting, but then, I wasn't trying to copy him either. I love his art though and it definitely inspired this piece.  I posted about her initially in my Mucha-Inspired Mixed Media Girl WIP post.

I find inspiration wherever I can: in nature, in music, in books, in the art of my peers, and from the masters.
