Sally

Plastered SallyI don't like this painting as well as the ones I did in DJ's class. I struggle with shading and what-not. It is going to take me a lot more practice. She turned out more cartoony than I would have liked. I decided her name should be Sally -- but it later occurred to me that maybe her name should be Paris, because she is painted on those plaster of Paris gauze strips. The cheesecloth texture was hard to paint on, but it was a very neat effect.

I love Sally Paris and I don't think she looks cartoonish.

Your painting is coming along, Karen. This is very nice, and I love the plaster gauze. Hmmm, I may have to get some of that.

I think she's great. I am horrible at shading, actually now that I think of it, I can't draw either...lol
