CS Designs Angeline Hidden Beauty

Angeline is one of my new Christmas Digital Designs. I made her with Christmas in mind but once I saw her in print something totally different emerged in my mind. I decided she needed to be just a little bit Goth and therefore the black and purple. I especially like the little red halos around her eyes, kind of how I look after I have spent too long drawing on my computer. The painted layer peeking behind the red one was done with a page from an old art supply catalog and various colors of acrylic washes. The beads are all hand rolled paper and Angeline has been colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with odorless turpentine. Once I colored Angeline and saw how different she looked, The words for the sentiment just popped into my head and seem to fit perfectly. Perhaps we should always look deeper than what is on the surface, what we fine might just surprise us.

While not your usual Angel, she is still beautiful if you look deep enough. Her Angelic personality seems to shine through no matter what color she is and hope you like her too.

This Art Tag was created for the current challenge Angels or Wings at Art With No Boundaries Challenge Blog which is sponsored by CS Designs
