Completed Sleeping Beauty

Gaylynn M. Robinson     Sleeping Beauty     8 1/4" X 10 1/2 "   Watercolor
I completed Sleeping Beauty and entered her in the Viewpoint Show that is scheduled for August.

I am pleased with the painting as a whole. I like the netting on the skirt of the dress,the hair and face. 
What I am on the fence about is the couch. More specifically the pillows behind her.
I had debated on making the couch a solid color, which would have been 
easier to make the creases and movement in the cushions. However, I felt that would
have taken away the charm of the scene.

So fingers crossed that the judge likes her too!

Gaylynn I'm guessing my comment went into cyber space. I commented that your painting turned out beautiful. Not only is the composition wonderful, the subject is amazing and tells a story all its own. I love the plaid, her hair, the dress. Amazing painting.
