Helen is my very bubbling Viola teacher. She has a big
bottle brush tree in front of her house. I once was hit by
bird poo under the tree, but I still love them.
Helen, to me, is like the fairy godmother to Cinderella,
who can always make my dreams into reality, in exams or
Esteinfords. How amazing is she?! I couldn't help to draw
her with a big smile.
I used salt and cotton wool tips with water to have some
fun textures, I also used some old music sheets to collage
the Viola. NB: Don't call a Viola, a Violin! It's very rude!
That's why I put the alto chef on the tip of the bird's beak.
It was my 7th try to paint this portrait and I finally figured
the shadow out.
Helen always tells me that "Practice makes perfect" and it
works on painting too, I reckon
