Haute head

Here is my original sketch with a bit of color and shading added, prior to scanning.

For my digitally enhanced version  I used a beautiful old paper background courtesy of Kim Klassen, and a vintage postcard to which I added text.  The hat and face I continued painting using the Photoshop Elements brushes, and my trusty little mouse.  This is when a pen tablet would come in really handy!

Well, if you did that with a mouse, who knows what you could accomplish with a tablet! Beautiful addition to our collection of hats this week. Thanks for sharing!

Lovely sketch that turned out even better after the digital enhacing. Kudos!

Hi Ladies, Thank you so much for your lovely comments. For this piece, I first started with a sketch that I rendered in pencil, graphite, and colored pencils.......then I scanned it, and added more COLOR to the face and hat with the mouse, not the actual features. That was done prior. Glad you all enjoyed.

Oh now, what a stunning hat and what a creative and clever lady you are to create it.

These are just lovely, my favourite though is the first minimalist sketch. Thank you for joining in this week.
