GLORIA with the large orange lips. . .

"GLORIA"

This gal has rather large lips that may be a bit too emphasized with that bright orange lipstick!  The piece of paper I started drawing her on was obviously a bit too small.  Usually I start with a oval for a face and fill in the features but on this one I drew the mouth first and went from there - running out of room was not on my mind at the time.  OOPS!  Hope I don't make that mistake again. . .

I like the effect of running off the paper. Gloria has a pretty mouth, even with orange lipstick.

I always start with the nose...and I think running 'off the paper' makes it a really interesting composition! Great work! happy PPF!

I always like images that dont fit exactly on the paper. I agree with Dianne that it makes the composition interesting
