Painting my Black Velvet Lady

I began by starting on a much smaller black canvas so I could see what it’s like to paint on black.  It’s a lot like doing watercolors except instead of planning your whites, you’re planning your blacks.

You can also see in the photos below how my husband created my black velvet canvas for the wine lady who is the size of a door.

The Wine Lady (I’m not sure what to call her) is a recreation of a Cognac painting by Mucha. I’ve done my only little twists, including painting her on black velvet, as this painting is for our home.

Enjoy!  PS: I don’t know why some of the photos are sideways… sorry about that!
