"Beautiful Japan" - Geisha Finished

Hi Everyone

i know I have not posted an update in a while but wanted to just get her done and now she is FINALLY DONE!! WOOO HOOOOO

I gave her this title

"Beautiful Japan"
8.5" x 13.5" Ampersand Scratchboard

This has been my most ambious project to date...I thought my color pencil pieces took forever to complete LOL I think I will go back to doing fur and leaving the stippling technique alone for a wee bit LOL

I am also adding some Close ups of the scratchboard as I know i have been asked before to post some of the background and of her face.

C & C always welcome
have a fantastic Christmas to everyone here ;-)

Sheryl


here are the close ups

The stippling technique you have used is ideally suited for the skin texture . I admire your patience . Well done

Your title is perfect (since this girl is not a geisha) and the work is very beautiful!

Sheryl this is an amazing piece. Your stippling affect is awesome, I can't even imagine doing something like this. Thank you so much for the close-ups. Merry Christmas to you too!

Re: "Beautiful Japan" - Geisha Finished

Wow! I stippled one small section of one board one time - ONE. And while I loved the effect, it took almost the same effort as the rest of the board. This is amazing - so soft.
