Colors of the Wind

One of my favorite disney princesses is Pocahontas! This piece took many adjustments and I just enjoyed the slow process of her taking shape. I am finding that using Gouache for the tiny details like the leaves and the facial features is a bit easier than using acrylic. there is something very plastic about acrylic and the details can get lost in the brush stroke if you aren't super careful. Gouache lays flat is has a nice matte finish. It is also very opaque - working perfectly for adding details.

The original has already sold, but I do have prints now available in the shop!
