Girl Sleeping

I gessoed watercolor paper to begin with and I drew into the gesso while it was still wet to create texture. I then added paint, ink, charcoal, carbon, chalk, vintage newspaper, rubber stamps and text. I used an image transfer technique to transfer a drawing of my daughter to the surface of the paper, then enhanced the drawing with charcoal. I splattered paint, scratched with a blade, rubbed the surface with sandpaper to create texture. Fun, fun, fun...
