Art Creations No. 65

"Ophelia" by John Waterhouse is the wonderful selection for this challenge. I used DecoArt's Sapphire mixed with Violet Pansy texture paint for the background. Then I dribbled Golden's Permanent Violet (dark), Ceramcoat's Green Tea and some white down the top and around the sides and bottom (over the copper Dresden) and added two little 3 leaf charms to finish it. Thanks much for looking!

Lynn, your goddess is so beautiful. I love the soft colours and I love the image you used. Who said a goddess has to be a show-stopper!! Yours has such a quiet, lovely face. Great work.
