a fragile shell by phoebe-johnson a fragile shell by phoebe-johnson
I've had this painting/drawing done for a while but I don't know what to do with the background and I'm too scared to ruin the original. Today I scanned it in and did something on photoshop... not sure if I'm happy with it but I'll upload it anyway.

Might think of something better and update the file in a couple of days. Maybe.

Oil paint with prismacolour pencil over the top when semi-dry, on watercolour paper. It's my new technique ahah.

This is absolutely stunning! I really love everything about it... your style and talent, and the seeming message that I get from it... just... WOW! :heart:

Oh my goddesses, I like the shell cap ... and I especially drawn to it because of the African continent over her ear.  To me it symbolizes that she belongs to another world ... and she dearly misses it, misses her culture, her nation, her tribe (if you will).  And something about it says that she may never see home again.  Or maybe if she does, the people and the places that she remembers will be changed or gone completely.  I so love this.  You are very talented.
