So anyway, below is my starting point with gold paint and a border of warm brown. I think of these as "bumble bee" colours, there's something warm, fuzzy and comforting about them!
Then it was onto the message of the page, which was about finding peace in a situation where its how I think about things that will make it possible to get through. In other words I needed to calm down and think positive! I do love how peaceful and serene this girl looks, and I like to think that the little gold bird is telling her "everything is going to be fine"
