Faces, the Human Form & Characters
Week 33 - August 15
Art Challenge: Painted
Journal Prompt: How do I face my biggest challenge?
Welcome to Week 33!
Since this week is about PAINT - it was a no-brainer for me. Fluorescents all the way. I grabbed a piece of underpaper, which is the newsprint I put on top of my studio table to catch all the spills and overpainting. As you can see, my underpaper has been well loved! I used gel medium to glue a piece to my journal for an instant background!
Thinking about this week and my biggest challenges . . . hmmmmmm . . . that was easy. I have so many balls in the air right now that the things I am juggling are starting to slip and fall! Too much to handle, for sure. So that thought inspired me to draw my figure this week imitating how I feel right now. I used a Stabilo pencil to quickly sketch my figure. Notice in the picture below, she has a little smile.
Next, I reached for my YUMMY fluorescent Golden Paints and my AWESOME Montana Acrylic paint pens and got to work. It took me a long time, because I really like playing with these paints. Oh the colors . . . I could eat them for dessert!
So here's what I ended up with - please notice the look on her face NOW! Yep, this is exactly how I feel! I hope you all are having a better week - and as always, I look so forward to your challenges! You are pretty lucky, because we have the most divine Mystele Kirkeeng as our featured artist this week!!! I can't wait!!!
