Face painting time

Hello everyone and happy Sunday!! I hope the weather at your end is better than at mine? It´s been cold, rainy and grey the past days. Which is good, creativity wise (more time in studio), but it is starting to dim my mood. I need sunshine! I miss sunshine. It has been the only thing that has carried me thru this strange period of time. Spring, flowers and sunshine. And now… I can´t cope with this type of weather. It´s like this the whole winter, who needs this greyness all year long? Not me for sure!

Anyways, today I´m sharing yet another face painting with you guys. Here it is:

I changed my art journal format to a big one for a change! This is by Dylusions and it´s the large creative journal. I am loving the paper, by the way! And the size! Great for faces :).

I am trying to develop in painting faces. Not realistic ones – mine are more imaginary. I´m experimenting with different ways of painting them, but have been strongly inspired and couraged thru Dina Wakley´s Facebook lives. She has this very relaxed approach towards her art journals and watching her has helped me overcome my fears of doing something wrong. Because, if you never paint, experiment and try, you will never develop. So I´ve tossed all my fears in a bin and am going with what appears on paper.

And I do LIKE how she turned out. I wasn´t going for a „face face“ if you know what I mean, and suddenly she was there. I like her eyes and the nose. Definitely development happening there :). I painted with Dina Wakley paints again. Loving them, by the way. Going to need more colors! And might want to get another of these journals. I think Art from the Heart is going to be hearing from me very soon ;-).

You can find all the products I´ve used on this page, listed in the supply list at the end of this post – just in case you are interested. And I did dry paint brush, by the way. And didn´t clean in between. Veery freeing painting that way. I wish I could just do this all day, every day! I find such great pleasure in it at the moment.

Wishing you a lovely Sunday! Keep on creating,
xxx, Sanna
