Wow we have had a lot of rain this summer. The best way to cure the soggy blues? Paint! This little girl is a new character I am developing. The best way to keep refining a character is to keep creating it! I thought she would not mind the rain if she had a perfect pair of cute boots to match her umbrella. And what is a play day without a friend? The background was created by watercoloring through a stencil. I used the stencil again with a bit dryer paint for the puddle. The image of the girl and cat was actually painted and then cut out and placed onto the watercolor paper. She was created with acrylic paint and pencil.
