Masquerade

In Jenn's Artists Play Room this week the theme is masquerade. We don't have Halloween in NZ, so I decided to portray the excitement of going to a Masquerade Ball. Romance is in the air! With a mask on, we loose our inhibitions, and perhaps we can be what we were meant to be.

This piece is done on A3 Card, with acrylics, pen, pencils, and homemade stamps.

  4. Nice work, I like the idea of being anything I want - even if it is just at the Ball.

  6. Oh...that's a scary thought being anything I want Sharon...but I love the idea ;D
    The colours are so beautifully soft and delicate.
    I imagine it's a summer ball with the choice of colours that you've used :D
