Work in Progress: 1920s Gal

Last time I was shopping in Rotterdam, I found this beautiful paper. The photo doesn't do justice to the gold shine on it. I wasn't sure if it reminded me more of Art Deco or an illuminated manuscript, so I just squashed bits of both together and this is what happened. I'm pretty close to calling this done since it's best to stop before you go one brush stroke too far. This is the first time I've used acrylic since high-school, I think, and experimenting with different media is always fun! The outlining is done with a big fat permanent marker. I'm looking forward to seeing how it looks in a frame.
