You see, I dont blog for weeks then you get two at once! I am busy catching up, so if I dont show them now I will forget. Above is with the influence of 'Art Geeks' that I joined this week, so it does have a Christy influence after watching the video. Not like me not to do a face on a page, but the prompt was to use something you love and I always like that image on a napkin I had so started out with that. Too many circles? I am a bit addicted to them just now, must tone down.
This one is on the page I started yesterday, I outlined the face last night and finished off today, I did not want too much shading as wanted to still see the background through. I am practicing for the next canvas, having finished my first two off it will soon be time to begin again. First one is now all varnished so will give that a whirl in the Etsy shop later this week or beginning of next.
Last of all is this weeks 'Lifebook 2014' lesson, this week was a bonus lesson with Marieke Blokland, I enjoyed the lesson though again I think I have gone way too bright and busy, need to learn to tone down a bit, still I do like her dress.
I have a new book to read tonight, "Acrylic Solutions" by Chris Cozen and Julie Prichard, it was recommended to me by Stephanie from Two Raggy Doodles I am really looking forward to reading it. All about mixed media techniques so I might learn a bit more, hopefully how to 'tone down' a bit.
