I was given this opportunity to work with a lovely dead beach babe!! I really loved coloring her and was inspired to create an apocalyptic fantasy vacation scene. I used acrylic paint washes for my background and made some beat-up buildings...using a dark gray color scheme to give it a gloomy "dead" look. I drew in some wandering zombies to add some depth to my landscape. After all the coloring, I decided to try something new. I used my Gesso to create some neat texture for the sludgy water waves and then painted them with more acrylics (sea foam, green and a touch of black). The final touch was putting it all on black cardstock, cutting the hole for my beach beauty to peak out thru, and adding the sentiment "you deserve a vacation".
Also, be sure to hop along and see all the other gals and their wonderful creations!
