Take a Word: Angel

Please click for larger view


I was on my iPad when I saw this week's challenge theme, which prompted me to use a drawing app to try to create a piece for the theme. After I drew the angel, I embellished her in Photoshop Elements with more color and my own drawn/painted patterns, and added a background adapted from my own design. Time-consuming, but such fun on a gray and rainy Saturday!

(Sorry for the multiple postings for this piece.Operator error!)

I love to see your own paintings, Sherry, this is superb. Drawing on the Ipad always strikes me as being very difficult. Your patterned background is terrific too.
