I have completed my canvas and here she is. I purposely made her neck very long and her face is also a bit on the long side not very pretty either. I am not sure if I like it very much , but it is done and I hope my friend will like it. The colours are a bit brighter than what has come out in the photograph. I created the textures with modelling paste and bubble wrap which I am sure you all know how. I spread the modelling paste on to the canvas where I wanted it and then pressed a piece of bubble wrap over it to create the impression simple. I also made a crude stamp with cardboard by drawing on it some shapes and cutting it out then applying paint to the cardboard and stamping it on the canvas. The shapes didn't come out well in the canvas but I like the hint of the shape on the canvas effect so I left it. I think if the shapes had shown up it might not have looked as nice.
