Peace and Open House

Each person has to find peace within. And peace to be real must not be unaffected by outside circumstances.
~Mahatma Gandhi~

Here is a  little progression shoot for you.

Always starts with the sketch

Add a little color

Add the Christmas Carol Music Paper.
I always use Golden Matte Gel Medium
Make sure you use the brayer to get all the bubble out from under the paper

Added the hair with some paper that I made.

Used a stencil to make the letters.
Again out of the paper I made.

Glued the Peace with Gel Medium
Also added some swirls in the background to add some glory

 "Let us forgive each other - only then will we live in peace"

~Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy~

Also I wanted to let everyone know that I will be having an open house on Dec 1 from 1 to 4...

What an awesome angel you've painted, and very nice words about to forgive each other. I like much the glories above her head :)
I've been searching for golden matte medium where I live, but have not found it yet. but I've got the liquitex one.

Have a lovely open house, sad you're living so far away :)
