Shades of Twilight

Working in my journal I was inspired to do the background after I found the image of the woman on the right side. I choose the colours from her dress and sponged on acrylics in layer after layer. I then used the technique Misty Mawn taught at Artfest for painting the face but modified it somewhat and I am very happy with the results. On the left side I used a print on canvas that I originally did as a watercolour. I photographed it on my patio when the bright summer sun was casting shadows of the branches on my page. I love the lighting that resulted. I am not sure if I am finished these pages but I like them so far. :)
