Hi everyone, I took a computer break yesterday and did not come on at all.
Here I want to show you a sketch and a mixed media piece WIP which you will be eligible to win if you comment on my Giveaway post. So if you haven't commented yet, got here to do so, I am giving away 2 mixed media pieces in my Giveaway one for each prize pack.
So here is Day 24. I found a pic online and liked the hands on the face so I attempted it an a partly open mouth. I did a few things different but I am pleased considering this is my first actual piece done off of an actual photograph. The only thing that I must say didn't turn out very well is the girl was Japanese and her eyes could have used a bit more work. I had a very long nose and very narrow and when I looked at the face I knew something had to be done but after discussing this with my hubs, he said you need a larger nose and not so long.
So here she is....Miss. Peace O. Work.....the hands were a challenge as well but I did the best I could considering I haven't really done other body parts. Everything is symmetry as I am learning. I have really enjoyed this challenge very much....I feel very content where I am, not trying to bring perfection the first time around since I am far from being perfect.....but.....I see great strides just in the 3 weeks I have been doing this challenge, and, thanks to all of you who have stopped by and left encouraging comments.
And this is a WIP mixed media doll that you will be eligible to win as a thank you for following and leaving lovely comments during this challenge and before and after. As you can see I still have lots left to do but isn't it fun to get just a sneak peek? My mixed media pieces with be sealed with beeswax after all the details are comple.. So don't forget to sign up for my giveaway with the links posted throughout this post
On another note....yesterday I finally went out to buy some much needed summer clothes. Hubs said go look for some things and a dress if you like and that would be his one gift for me for my birthday. I decided yesterday I would rather shop for art supplies or groceries. After about 4 hours of trying things on, I was exhausted not to mention a little disappointed not to find an appropriate dress for summer. They make dresses for very long legged twiggy people. Hard to find petite and length appropriate and not all gathered where you don't want gathers like right under your bosom. Good grief, I think I am going to bring out the sewing machine and make my own.
Take care everyone and til next time, stay inky, painty, crafty or just be YOU
