New hair, new painting

So I did get my hair coloured but decided not to go for the "fireman" red like last time. I went for a dark brown with red highlights. And I got a new haircut. I love it!

Today, I got the urge to paint. It hadn't happen in a long time. This is the result. I have no idea who or what she is. But she wanted to be painted. She doesn't have a name yet either.

The canvas board is 12"x16" and I only used acrylic paints. For the building, I used Light Modeling Paste from Liquitex mixed with black acrylic paint. The lighter streaks were made with reinkers that I let drop down the canvas board (I turned it upside down afterwards to complete the painting) and then wiped off.

I don't have much else to say.

Doesn't it always give you a little boost to get a haircut and new color? I like it. And the painting is awesome. She'll tell you her story sooner or later.
