Book Art Project (almost done)

Here she is in a long linear fashion, totally sketched and almost finished with the coloring. I opted for the white china marker (like a grease pencil) which looks so fabulous on a black background (just black gesso, by the way) and then I've colored it in colored pencils since they were within reach. It's actually quite subtle in color ... a departure from the others that were quite vibrant. Any suggestions whether she needs to be fully colored ... I sort of like the partially colored areas.

The ends have to be attached and then folded to become the "book" format ... I'm liking her so much at this point I don't want to fold her, but will do so to complete the book.

(bear with me on the photo - my cell takes low res photos ... so will take one with the other camera next time).

Very nice, Laura. What are the dimensions on this one?

Hi Jim, She is 10" x 60" ... I'm going to add curved panels to the top and bottom. Still not sure I want to fold her, so am considering other mechanics for portability.
