I decided to extend my repertoire by including the body! this is not easy, as it involves adding proportion etc and highlights mistakes.
Anyway! I chose a pic from a magazine and sketched it quickly with my black Stabilo pencil.
Next, I added strips of papers from a range of black and white papers called Paris Nights using matte multi medium..
It was quite a scruffy journal page as my journal is nearly full.
Next, I chose fresco paints Little Black Dress and Snowflake to paint the girl.
I needed to loosen up my technique and painted it as freely as I could with a large, flat Dina Wakley paintbrush....the idea being that I wouldn't get bogged down with detail!
I think that it worked...and I was obviously in the right frame of mind.
I only used a tiny brush to dot the whit highlight in the eye!
I am entering this into the latest PA challenge... the link is a bit tenuous, but I did use matte medium for the papers and to be honest, am proud of my work and wanted to show it off!
Also, Kim Dellow's Face on Friday is a good place to share my work!
