It's been great to discover my personal ways of creating faces.
Okay, onto art...not much as I seem to keep attempting
backgrounds with either lots and lots of layering,
even over a previous rose:
This 8"x10" wrapped canvas has had four different butterflies, and probably six layers of colored tissue paper, paint and now Ranger's Tim Holtz's Idea-ology paper. At this rate, this mixed media mess will have at least and inch or two added to it's size.
Another background with the same Ranger's Tim Holtz paper covering up layers of gesso which is covering up a couple of butterflies that have bled through every attempt of covering them up until now.
Now I am stuck and have no idea what to do with this.
Maybe more paint and paper???
I have been doing the 29 Faces of February 2017 and there is only a couple days left. I love this Challenge because, for me, it's finding my own style and that is what I focused on for the month. I have been posting daily on Insagram (rasz_art_designs) and on my art Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/raszartdesigns/
I have only one graphite pencil left and one blending stick.
The pencil is a Progresso Woodless Graphite 6B.
Here are two faces that I really love.
I think I have found my style for faces:
I still draw my colorful characters too.
I will always do that and included several of them in the Challenge.
I am having surgery this coming week and will be in the hospital on my birthday,
which is why I wanted to post today.
Yesterday was pre-op stuff for me, and I had too much on my mind to be able to post.
So I will see you in a few weeks, hopefully with some more drawings or paintings or even a story or two. I have FINALLY started to write! It feels great!
