Peruvian Maiden

This is a little painting I did during Saturday at the Art Chix show. It was done very tiny (4x6) on a Kilimanjaro Baby Block. In an attempt to paint faces of ethnic intrigue, this was particularly appealing to me. In addition to the facial structure, the blanket and hat details satisfied my desire for small, intricate detail. The background was dropped in by "wet on wet" and then some dry brush at the finish. It was a neat exercise!
