Girl From Ipanema

Feb 28, 2016

This is all very new to me... but here goes. 


I decided on this girl in a vintage travel poster for Ipanema because it reminded me of the song "The Girl from Ipanema": 

"Tall and tan and young and lovely
The girl from Ipanema goes walking.."

which was one my mom sang when we were kids. 

I also liked that a lot of the shapes were easy curves and straight lines, but the textures gave a lot of visual interest. I thought it would be a good one to start with. 

Here's the beginning of my outline and fill work: 


I've done the hat, the bathing suit, and her hair so far. I've not watched the class vids past basic shapes, but I'm pleased with how it's going so far!
