Hello and Happy Tuesday!!! Today I´m again sharing another art journal page with you. Are you ready for some serious colour?
This one, is inspired by Louise Nelson´s class I took in fall 2018 in Norway and also by Deb Weiers face paintings. See, I´ve been adoring both ladies work for quite a while now and I wanted to give that type of art a try.
There´s a lot on this page that I learned on Louise´s class in Norway, but there are also bits and pieces that I tried to learn from Deb Weiers art. I love painting faces, but you know, with a twist, since I am not good at realistic portraits at all. Besides, I love crazy, silly, interesting non-traditional portraits of all sorts. So there, that inspired me to create this page.
I also learned alot during creating. I need to learn how to let go and be totally relaxed about what I am about to make. I tend to overthink things too much when creating. And thinking simpler and enjoying the process, not thinking about the end result too much during the creating process. I hope to find my way of painting faces in the process 🙂 ..
I´ve again started with a page that had some stamping already on it. You can see hints of it behind the red painted areas. Besides that, I´ve used only acrylic paints and Posca pens on this page. I am really happy with how the page turned out. And the quote „You are so weird, do not change!“ – just love it!!!
Wishing you a lovely start into your week,
see you soon, Sanna
