This is the theme piece that I did for the art exhibition that I was in. The theme was 'A Rhapsody of Art' which means 'music in art'.
A friend of mine was kind enough to model for me with her GORGEOUS eyes. I then put the picture through Photoshop Elements 9 and added music notes. But because I don't have a warp tool the notes didn't want to bend around the Iris. *Blah* so I ended up doing it by hand.
But the story behind this picture. I originally was going to paint it on a 11" x 14" canvas. Well that didn't work out as the colors DIDN'T want to blend together. I then moved onto a 9" x 11" canvas to which the same problem occurred. I then decided to switch to pencil and, well, you see the results.
