Girl With a Gold Earring


16"x20"
I'm entering this is in a Juried Exhibition coming up at Magnolia Plantation. A juried show is where the pieces on the show are selected by an "expert" for inclusion in the show. All the pieces in this show will depict a slave girl wearing a golden earring; a gold piece was recently unearthed during a recent archeological dig on the plantation.

I tried using a different recipe for skin on this, using all transparent, staining colors as opposed to the more earth-colors I have used for skin in the past. I was going for a "golden glow" here.
Wish me luck getting into the show!!
