Welcome to Week 35 of The Documented Life Project!
This week's challenge is to Draw, sketch, paint, doodle a face or cut and alter one from a book or magazine.
I fully intended to draw a serious, realistic portrait this week but I looked around my art table and saw this piece of watercolor paper I had been experimenting with. Realistic . . . out the window! This looks like candy or confections to me. I toned it down a bit with a little white gesso and a dry brush but the luscious neon colors are still popping through. A quick little sketch . . .
Then I added some yummy watercolor pencils, white gouache and acrylic paint, alternating to build up layers and definition.
I decided her hair looked like frosting on a cupcake, so I turned her dress into a cupcake paper! She's popping up to say hello!
Hope you have fun with this challenge - don't be intimidated - faces are easy and fun! Don't judge your work and don't compare yourselves to others! Just create for YOU!
