Art Journal easy technique

In this page I use a very easy technique for those days when we have little time but we still want to paint. Give yourself at least 10 minutes to create your art, even if you get interrupted!

How to add hair to a painting. Art collaboration

I am in an art collaboration with Britta Mindart.dk in Denmark and Sue in Scotland, so much fun! It is the FITW (face in the world) an art collab where each of us finishes the starting paint of the other in a team of 3.
In this video I make a very simple way to add colorful hair to a portrait.
Let me know what you think, and say hello in the channel if you can ♥

Dear 3 readers

By now it is more than obvious that I am not keeping up with my blogging.
The moving in the middle of the 29 challenge was hard enough, but this unpacking and getting used to a new area, a few things not working properly, weather (dryer and with tons of mosquitoes) 😐 and still unpacking, has proven a bit too much.
Here are some updates:
Surprisingly, I did finish the 29 faces.
My birthday was a few weeks ago, and my daughter turned 19.
I have opened more boxes that I can believe.... and I am not done yet!
Every little thing that could've been wrong, did indeed go wrong. We didn't have beds for days so we remained in a hotel. No internet either, so I felt lucky to have a Starbucks near by, even if I'm not a big coffee drinker :oS

I have been trying to see it as an adventure, but I am yet to clear and organize my art room and that is very stressing.

Anyway, I hope I can settle soon, it is really draining.
Mostly, I have been aiming my attention to my channel, so if you want to see what I'm up to, please visit HERE
Thank you very much for stopping by, I hope you have a blessed rest of the day ♥

Finally images, and a video!

So here are 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21 ...
As you can see I made a lot of digital images. Not my cup of tea and stretching out of my comfort zone....  still a lot of fun!

15, 16, 17... 18?

As you probably know by now, we have been in the chaos of moving. Everything that could take longer or go wrong, did go wrong and took longer...
I lost track of how many faces I have made so far, because I posted some in one network but not another , and not here in the blog either... But I will be checking and trying to finish on time.

I cannot figure how to post my images from my iPad... Did I tell you we can't find my monitor yet?
This will be funny sometime in the future 😐

For now I will show you a picture of our cat in his old favorite spot.

Thanks for stopping by!

Face 14 of 29 faces

This one face was a "stain" as well, but the color was so light, I decided to keep working with m pencil. Whenever I keep working on it, it will be a pretty face, I can tell from now. ;o)


Thanks for visiting! Are you keeping up still?
The hardest part is the posting, I think!

Face 13 of 29. More messy brushwork

I am allowing myself just a few brush strokes  per page.  It looks crazy lol
I am hoping to have more time in the near future to work the next steps, but for now, this is where I am stopping :o)

Face 11 of 29 faces. Messy face

What elements make a face, a face? When does a splash turn into a face?
I am really enjoying painting the minimum  to make a face look like a face.
It is hard for me, loving detail so much, but if you try it, it is a good exercise, and you can always come back and do your familiar thing.
For this challenge I always like trying abstracts and stopping to see what is happening at that time on the composition and the face.

No art today

In honor of the 9/11 tragedy, I do not post art today.
I read that this generation starting high school this fall, is the 1st one that will hear and learn about the 9/11 before they were born. So it was not part of their lives, and yet, we all were marked one way or another in this nation and in the world. Things are done much different now, after that and not really for the better.
I will continue with my challenge tomorrow.

Day 10 of 29

I am still working on different expressions, even if only on simple sketches.

 
This is how I feel with all my stuff half packed, and my art things put away :oP

Day 9 of 29 faces

How are you doing in your challenge? We are starting the 2nd week!
For this week if you like a prompt, try to change the size of your work. If you work on a small scale, try to make a larger face, and if you paint big, try a miniature.
I am trying expressions and you can tell she is not happy lol

Day 6 and 7 of 29

Hello, some days I just have time to splash a bit and run.
I am moving, in case you have not seen my post or videos, so life is chaotic at the moment, but I do want to do a little art, it is refreshing ♥

This is the beginnings of face 6:


And the 7th, which I will make more, based on a simple stain:



I hope you like the WIPs!
