This dreaming lady is going back to Gina in the UK ... She wanted something with happy thoughts and this is my interpretation ♥ The sun in her forehead is metallic gold.
I had so much fun painting her!
The last face was "pulled art" in my journal. She ended up being a swimmer without a suit. lol For some reason some of my paints end up bald or clothless.
This is a detail. The full image is after the page-break.
I always feel a bit sad that the challenge is done, after so much activity, sniff-sniff ;o)
but I think it is also good that we take one day to reflect on all the pieces done, and see if we want to take a new direction in our work, if we learned a better way to do something, or if we want to keep experimenting with a new medium.
Thank you so very much for playing along with me!
Now we will have more time to visit all the blogs and enjoy the eye candy!
See you soon!
I made a face yesterday but didn't make it to the scanner... so today I am working on another face and posting early.
These 2 ladies are faces 27 and 28 of the challenge and also are the faces of 2 traveling journals!
The one with the sun in the forehead is for Gina, and the one with the moon is for Anita. You will see them finished in another post, along with all the other ones that I have been finishing without scanning.
I cannot believe we are about to finish another round of 29 faces!
wow.... I made my face on time, then I forgot to scan to post! :oP
I am currently working on a texture online workshop... so excited about it! So I got carried away and almost didn't make it to the blog \(Ͼ˳Ͽ)/
Anyway, remember the barely there face of a couple of days ago? Here she is, wings and all:
OK. I have to confess I do not like some qualities of the water soluble crayons. Why? Because I am one of those people that has to come back later to keep adding to a painting, and being so used to acrylics (or dry oils for that matter!) I do not expect paint to move on me (read: mess) lol
But on the other hand, there are now such wonderful colors! So basically, I am not new to water soluble wax pastels... but lets say I am not too absorbed with them. At least for now (°‿~ ) I suppose I can get a sticky note remind me to spray the piece when I'm done playing...
The other crayons that drive me a bit nuts are the oil pastels. I like my work to dry properly and not need a glass to protect it.... I know you can set it somehow, but I think we get used to the behavior of a medium and not too much with other kinds.
I know people that don't like acrylics... it takes every kind, right?
OMG... 3 more faces and I'm done!! Are you keeping up?
The weather was beautiful today! I ran my errands early, some chores and then I went out among some light rain and some sunshine. Beautiful!
So basically I got home and rushed to finish more stuff, one of them being the face of today. I decided on charcoal. I still need to work on the eyes, but since I am aiming at loose brushstrokes .... I will leave it at that and go back to paintbrushes for now :oD
If I start getting into details I will never stop lol
This weekend was full of surprises. Not all of them the fun kind :oP Lets just say that I didn't have much time to do art, but I made these in the hopes to not fall behind :oP
#22 is one of my girls, but just at the sketch point.
#23 is a crazy mono-printed paper with my gelatine pad.This actually was one I was going to get rid of, but I totally saw a woman there, so I marked the features with my charcoal pencil. can you see her? Click to see larger.
Are you keeping up? Sometimes life goes bananas... we just have to do what we can to hold on tight (-'‿'-)
As I was working on the kitty painting of my last post, I realized I was going to have left over paint and I simply cannot stand wasting paint. There are many ways to use the left over paint and this is one of my favorites:
I left the brush run out of paint in some areas to make it look distressed.
It's been so long since I didn't paint a kitty! I cannot believe it!
Well, my friend Melo Art posted a link of an artist (whose name escapes me at this moment, sorry!) it was a painting of a cat on a bench in a garden.... that amazed me because it looked like my cat, on a bench lol here he is, modeling:
So after that, of course I needed to make a cat painting. So here it is.
This is one of the pages that I had left unfinished in my journal, and it is my face number 16 for the challenge.
I might add to the background a deeper blue, but since I'm running out of time, I will call it done for today. It's been a long time since I do not paint a Madonna!
