Mindy Lacefield Girl

Hi everyone,

I'm joining in with Sunday Sketches today with a painting in the style of Mindy Lacefield. Well I say style, it's the closest I could get though it was only my second attempt so please be kind!
I found it such a hard style to attempt as it's completely different to how I normally draw my faces but there's something I'm really drawn to in her artwork.

Bockingford Water colour paper, Neocolors II

I'll be back later as it's the second Sunday in the month it's MMW time ;)

Hope you like it

  1. Aww this is lovely. The little birdie is cute and the colour combinations really work. Happy SS x

  2. Just lovely Donna!
    Happy Sunday!

  3. She is lovely. I love Mindy Lacefields whimsical art.

  4. Ah, how sweet is this Donna! That sweet bitty bird is trying to cheer her up. It's working on me anyway. I feel very cheery now. I don't know the style, but I think you've got a great sketch here, colored wonderfully.

  5. Such a beautiful whimsical portrait! Love it very much.

  6. I see a lovely image of a little, a bit sad girl looking in wonder at the bird who has just landed on her hand. I think you did great!

  7. You've done a great job with your girl portrait, gorgeous shading!
    Hugs, Lynne x

  8. I am not familiar with Mindy's style, but I love how your portrait came out. There is a tender yet fragile look in her expression and the bird gives hope. Beautifully done!

  9. I am also not familiar with Mindy's style but I love your girl and how she looks at the lovely blue bird. Your colors are beautiful as the whole illustration is!

  10. Adorable and creative painting ~ love her and your vintage piece is also exquisite ~

    Happy Week to you ~ ^_^

  11. I love the colors, and the sweet way the bird and girl are looking at each other.

  12. I have never seen any of Mindy Lacefield's works, but yours is so sweet. I love the look on her face and the little bird in her hand. I am interested in the watercolor paper you used. I like the texture of it. I think it adds to your picture. Such a nice piece. genie

  13. I think she's absolutely wonderful and you've done a great job. Mindy's work is so unique and full of life. You did it! Keep it up! :)
