She Cries Tears Of Color

I was totally inspired when I watch a vid on youtube posted by Tam (Willowing). She did a painting in only black, white, buff, and a tiny bit of pink. I often end up with wildly vibrant paintings so I thought it would be fun to accept her challenge and do something muted. After I watched the video this image formed in my head and I had to paint it.

The tears are stand out a bit more in real life, but they are still very subtle. I wanted to stick to using only black, white, and buff, but I had to add the color!

She is acrylics, graphite, stamping, collage, and water soluble crayon.
I think I'll get her matted and framed!
