Phantom Lady: Wet & Wild - Complete

Here is the final image. More water added to her body, bits of balloons at her feet and a round graphic element that looks more yellow here than it does on the original. This was a fun piece to do. And thanks again to Kevin for letting me share the process with everyone. No takers on more painted pieces so I will be posting sketchbook pieces for a while. :)

In the meantime, I'm gonna go celebrate my birthday. :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY GENE!!!!!

I take it that today is the big day or is this simply a more convenient celebration?

Fantastic results on this painted piece. A great theme and an even better follow through on bringing it to life. Another big thanks to Kevin who allowed the shared experience.

Gene,

Happy 27th birthday! Hope you and the family celebrate,and the rest of us will know for next year!!!!

The piece is great and the water running down her body effect really makes the piece for me!

Sorry you have no more takers on painted pieces, but we all loves the sketchbook pieces too!
