Painting Coraline Mixed Media part one

Started painting again!! I had forgotten how much fun it is! The last time I painted was about 9 years ago when I went on a drawing/painting marathon then I suddenly stopped and haven't touched a brush since. But for the last few days I've been getting the urge so I headed off to the Dollarama and picked up a canvas for 2 bucks and waited for a subject to come and today it hit me to paint Coraline.
I  have been wanting to try a mixed media so I'm thinking Coraline will be created from something other than paint... we'll see what happens but so far I am liking what I've done. I still have to clean up some edges and add in a few things but I will have a step by step post when the painting is finished and Coraline has graced the canvas... stay tuned! UPDATE: finished painting here
oh yea, almost forgot! I'm now on twitter :)


  1. I am so in love with this. AMAZING job! <3

    1. Thanks so much Jourdan! I was working on this one late into the night last night. Almost ready now to hang on the wall, I'm excited! Will be posting the finish painting in a day or so :)
