The Angel’s arm, hand and face are now painted. The sky is still wet which makes pulling the edges easier. My wrist is braced on a mahl stick to steady my hand as I work on the fine details. If you would like to see the image larger just click on the picture.

The Angel’s blonde, wavy hair is blocked in with mixes in various proportions of MUD + Cadmium Orange + Ultramarine Blue + White. Then I work on those wonderful wings that suspend her above the wispy clouds. The flat edge of a large Bright brush is perfect to indicate the feathers.

Terry loves soft pinks and yellows, so I make pale Permanent Rose Lilies part of the bouquet filling our Angel’s arm. The gentle curve of a Palm Frond adds a nice touch.

Buttery Yellow Daisies complete the flowers. We’re done! Our Angel will have to dry for a few days and then she’ll be off to bring Peaceful Joy to her new home. Have an absolutely delightful day. Hugs,
