Finding My Gyspy Soul

 By Lisa for Rebecca-lee

When I received Rebecca-lee's journal, I had no idea what Gypsy Soul actually was - so to my trusty Pinterest I went!

I found quite a few images and quotes that inspired me to do my spread.

Firstly I gessoed the pages, then drew a girl sitting in a meadow.  I did take a pic of her, but being pencil it was a bit light.  So I won't share it!

Next I watercoloured her.  Sometimes you get great effects watercolouring over gesso... and sometimes you don't.  I quite like how her dress turned out though! 💗

I also watercoloured the background, which turned out a bit wishy washy.  No matter though, because of the meadow flowers I was adding with acrylic.  Firstly though, I added a black outline to my girl, because I thought she may not stand out enough amongst the flowers.

On the other page I added the quote that I had found:

Wanderlust consumed her; foreign hearts and exotic minds compelled her.  She had a gypsy soul and a vibrant hope for the unknown.

Then I added lots and lots of pink, purple and orange flowers around her, and the quote.  

A big blue sky with some clouds, and a big yellow sun, and I called it done.

Hope you like it Rebecca-lee!  Happy Arting everyone.

Cheers, Lisa xx
