Look who showed up on the table. I've been thinking that her name will be Nora...Adorable Nora. I started with randomly, intuitively laying down various paint colors on the canvas. Then I sketched her and painted in her skin tones and hair. Her bathing suit is actually the negative space (background) showing through. I used some white to fill in layers on the background and used the end of a paintbrush to scratch in the little shells and beach ball and sun. Next time, I think I'll scratch in some words too!
