Hi everyone, the final days are here for the 29 faces challenge.
Wow what a great time and learning experience it has been and best of all you encouraging me to keep going and commenting and challenging me. Thank you everyone
Remember day 25 I only showed you a portion of the mixed media doll I was doing for one of the prizes of my giveaway? Well here she is...complete and I did NOT do the beeswax....I destroyed 2 pieces today and after all the work I put into them I was miffed and the heat was getting to me, not to mention car trouble ...again... until I am adept at doing the beeswax or figuring what when wrong I am not going to add it for now.
So either Gail or Wendy will be giving this lovely a new home, how very exciting for me to share this new media in my art adventure....
Rosie was giving her approval as well. She just wouldn't stay out of the way, even tho she hates looking at the camera other body parts are OK....Click on the pic below to get a good look and see all the wonderful texture and layers of paint peeking out hither and yon. I had to redo the face today. I ruined it trying another method and well lets say I was not in a good mood but I redid this and I like this face much better than the original. I think the key to these faces are layers and layers of Prismacolour pencils and not be afraid to go too dark but you can't rub them hard you have to use a very light touch and hang out in the same place for a while as Suzi says.
And this was a real quick sketch on my prepped layered text and gessoed papers. I used acrylics on this and then I have some new Ditto sprays which have a lovely shimmer to them so I sprayed it on, let it drip then I took most of the colour off just to more or less stain the paper. This makes me happy.
And my artistic assistant, Rosie, dare not look at the camera but is always on the table roaming around. Today she managed to step on my palette and get the purple from the above girl on her paws. Oh well what artist hasn't got paint or something on them....
And tomorrow is the last day of 29 Faces, I may not be able to post as I have a commitment most of the day helping my MIL so I have 2 days of grace to complete the challenge.
Thanks for dropping by.
