What's on your easel?

I have been drawing women's faces for the past two weeks. This one I drew on mixed media paper then I decided to add a background. I glued scraps of beautiful handmade paper, book paper, watercolor twinkling H2O's scrap paper, and gelli print scraps around her, then I added tissue paper for the cheeks. I found this great embroidered paper that had specks of gold in it for her hair. On her neck I added book paper.

I then got out my acrylic paints and painted her in and around her. She's drying now but I'm sure she needs more. For now this is what she looks like.

What's on your easel? I'm linking with Sue Grilli today. If your interested in seeing more Artists check out her blog post.

Thanks for looking,
