I heart you.

It all begins with a little sketchy.

12" X 24" on stretched canvas

Gesso & acrylic to outline.

Prim inspired.

Sanded and distressed.

A crackle here, a crackle there.

Oil pastels for shading certain areas.

Metallic paints to highlight.

Overall, made with love... cause I heart you. :)
