madeline ~ waterolors, inktense pencil, gouache, casein paint and old wallpaper on book page

madeline turned out to be a wild and free soul...



before she got to be so wild and free... ; )

i thought she was done at that point so i was going to make a pogo print of her.... wow, going to amazon to get the link i see that they have pogo printers for $24.95 today! click on the link if you're interested, although the price may be higher by the time you read this. it can fluctuate a lot but i've never seen the price lower than $29.95 before...

back to madeline! she's one of the few things i've done outside my 'daily book' lately; sometimes ya just gotta get jiggy with the paint... her hair is courtesy of an amber inktense pencil...

  1. madeline looks like a sea nymph surround by sea foam with a coral crown and anemones jewels stippling the air she exhales - oh daughter of Neptune and orpheus is heard playing his lyre for her. Watch that a satyr doesn't snatch her in the dark of the new moon which will be upon us...hey, i just started playing with my inktense pencils...serious fun o'girl

  4. Love her, she's beautiful, ethereal, and young and old at once.
    Love the pogo printer heads up (shame the postage is $70 to me :( or I'd be in).

  6. Her eyes are amazing! She is definitely one of my favourites. What is it about her that makes her so special?? She just has that something! I like that there is a lot of white paint on the left and the blue is also only on that side. I love the places the print peeks out around here nose and above her eyes. Bravo for Madeline.

  11. I like the way she emerges ethereally out of the paper-and that brassy yellow hair colour is lovely!

  12. Oh, she is so beautiful. Love your work! I've had my eye on those Pogo's. It looks like such a neat idea.

  13. OK, hands down, she is the most beautiful of all the faces that lean to realism that you have done. She really looks out from the text on the page, like she comes from smoke or a whiff of spirit. wow. just wow.

    I hope I am not in trouble with this comment, but she looks the way I imagine you to be.

  17. Dear Lynne,
    I always admire your portraits. They are "only" faces, but so characteristic and painted so dearly. Very nice!

  20. Soft and dreamy violet eyes...she seems so far away, lost in thought.
    Beautiful Madeline.
    The inktense hair is gorgeous.

    I often think I *need* a pogo printer for my journal??? I might pop over and take a look.
