I'm obsessed about the band Little Mix and have been to see them perform a few times. I have drawn lots of pictures for them in a fan book I have been working on for nearly a year. I also actually met them in Liverpool in May and I got them to sign my fan book. I also did some drawings of the four band members, to give to them as presents as well as some homemade dream catchers. Leigh said I was very good at drawing and thought it was amazing!
I decided to do a painting of one of the band members. I chose a picture to work from which had some very bold colours. I sketched out the outline by scaling the picture up using the grid method. I then used acrylic paints to complete the picture. I found the skin tones quite difficult and had to spend a bit of time mixing the right colours. I looked for advice on the Internet and from my Mum.
I posted my finished picture on my Twitter account and got lots of nice feedback from other mixers (what Little Mix fans are called). I even got a tweet from Perries' Mum!
