29Faces-Day 20, 21, 22

Playing catch up here, I was busy painting and getting things caught up. We were supposed to get rain but it has been north and south of us. We happened to be in a banana belt where we miss a lot of weather so it did not rain but I took advantage of a cloud cover day.
So here is Face 20, it is on Watercolour paper and I am not very keen on it but I did used watercolour pencils and my new W/C crayons. I don't like her wings and her face could use more work but I had completed this yesterday and was torn whether I would post it but here it is. I am getting too far behind so thought it best to just use it for Day 20. The faces are not all pretty and the way I want them to be, after all it is a challenge. Not like I am entering a contest or anything.

The next 2 group of faces are my collaged and gessoed papers I did a bunch of to use for this challenge, so glad they were prepped for me ahead of time. I used acrylic paints for these one. This is my cat Rosie, she is orange and white and a little bit fat, she's my Rosiecats. (I say that to her and sing it too, she always answers back. I wonder what she says about being fat...LOL =^..^=)
Day 21a
 And here is the full page. Funny how the colours look so different with the closeup above and then the whole page in view. I didn't use a lot of gesso on top of my colours this time, I was going for the really bold look. Don't you love those polka dot stockings???? tee hee
 Meet the Lou family, (22a)

Day 22b
 Mary Lou, Katy Lou and little Cindy Lou.....isn't she a doll? I love the bold yellow and all the lovely dots. I am really into dotty things lately. See those ridgy lines? I used a piece of corrugated cardboard, brushed paint on it then pressed it on the background. You have to work fast because acrylic dries quickly. 
So now I have another face with coloured pencils started, I worked on it last night before bed, so I hope to complete it tomorrow but I am still doing some planting of flowers so we will have to wait and see what happens.
Thanks for dropping by.
