I chose this subject because of the look of intense enjoyment on her face and the lovely movement in the hands and the headdress. Once I had completed the figure I set about trying to fill the background with as much energy as possible. The background should be purely an extension of her. I scribbled and scratched at it like crazy. As a result, in a few areas, the top layers of the paper began to lift. I will have to start buying stronger Fabriano.
