Hello everyone and happy Sunday! Today it´s again face-share-day. That means another peek into my art journal and sharing a face experiment. I started with the bold magenta background. It´s brayered.
That is one bold starting point, eh? Then I drew the face lines and form and started painting with colours. I again used Dina Wakley paints here. And I chose colours on purpose that I hadn´t used on a face so far. Like, she has really nice brown eyes and brown hair. And she is wearing a turtle neck pullover in eggplant colour and turquoise expensive looking earrings ;-).
She definitely is more exotic than the ladies I painted before her. For painting I used Dina Wakley paints and and also her scribble sticks for splatters. The journal is by Dylusions (the bigger one).
I find painting these faces very relaxing by now. I´m not stressing too much about getting things „right“ or creating realistic looks. The ladies that show up, are totally imaginary and the process is lots of fun. I might call this journal my Face Book, when I´m all done. And it will be exciting to see, if and how much I´ve developed, when, I one day, finish this journal. It has plenty of pages, so it might take a while :).
Wishing you a lovely Sunday!!
