☆ Girl with the Dragon Mask

Girl with the Dragon Mask

My nieces birthday was earlier this week, and my brother told me she is having a dragon party this weekend. When ever I paint a picture for a friend or family member, I am never quite sure how it is going to turn out, and this painting, true to form, gave me so much trouble.

The eyes were wonky, the mouth too big, the mask to tricky. But in the end I think it worked out well, and I hope that my niece will enjoy it.

But she is four, and I suspect that she will enjoy the very noisy tinker bell camera that Bean picked out for her instead!

Don't forget that LilliBean Designs shop has a sale until the end of November (I have added many of my AEDM paintings + christmas card paintings) + if you haven't already thought about joining my very first Christmas Tag Swap, I would love it if you checked it out + thought about signing up!

  12. The painting is great. It's easy to put so much pressure on yourself when you are painting something that is a gift. The noisy camera is a good back up. There is plenty of time for her to realize that the painting is the far more special gift.

    1. Thank you - it didn't give me as much grief as some of my other paintings, but there were a few moments that I thought about throwing in the paintbrush - so to speak! x
