Sharing my art

I haven’t been posting on here since Wednesday the 18th.  I have been trying to keep up with the 29 Faces in 30 Days, and playing catchup with my Book of Days/Mirrors.  I’m starting to get faster at the faces.  Learning what works for me and what doesn’t has helped a lot.  I think this challenge was great for me!  I stressed so much over each face I was doing.  I just didn’t have any fun.  Now I am beginning to truly enjoy the process.  Here are the faces I haven’t posted yet on my blog.

Faces 20 and of 29 003

Faces 20 and 21.  This page is Walk In The Park.  It is a mom and her daughter taking a walk with their dog.  I don’t know how to draw a dog, so I wrote dog and put it on a leash.  LOL  The background on this (which I put down first, then drew over) was made from waxed paper that had been used for drop papers behind my paintings.  It was very frail and tore if I wasn’t really careful.

Faces 20 and of 29 002 It was a cold winters day so they had coats and hats on.  I like doing this little sketchy people sometimes.  Very different from trying to draw the larger faces.

Faces 20 and of 29 001  This is my attempt at a child.  It looks more like a very tiny woman.  I will have to work on that.

Faces 22 of 29 002 Face 22.  I love textured background.  I see a lot of people just drawing the faces on a plane background.  I can’t.  I have tried.  I always start fussing with the background.  Sometimes I do the background first then the face over it.  Sometimes I do the background and do the face on a plane piece of paper and collage it on top.  I have even tried doing the face, then creating the background around it.  I find this the hardest to do.

Faces 23 of 29 002Face 23.  This is where I tried to leave the background alone.  She looked lonely so I added texture using stencils with Spackle, and then added some stencils with colored pencils.  Added a little color here and there with water color pens.

Faces 24 of 29 002Face 24.  She is one of my favorites!  I saw someone make really fluffy hair and wanted a girl with hair like that.  This was made with a stamp that I had and then I went over that to highlight certain areas in a water color pen.

Faces 25 of 29 002Face 25  I did the background first on this one.  Then did the face on parchment paper and collaged it on top.  The hair on this one was also fun.  Done with Papermate pen and water color pens.  Papermate pens are really inexpensive and will write on most anything.  They have come out with some new colored pens called Ink Joy.  They are great too.

OK this catches me up to today.  Since this blog is already longer than I expected, I will just send you hugs and smiles and go make my breakfast  🙂
