29 Faces - #25 (Icon)

This is different from me, working on a larger scale and taking many hours to complete.  It's acrylic paint on 16x20" canvas board.  The title is "Icon".

29 Faces - #23

Getting close to the end of this challenge.  I am managing to keep up in spite of having to concentrate a great deal of effort on a large painting I am working on for an art exhibit.

29 Faces - #14

Had a devil of a time getting into blogger to post this picture.  I am a day behind.  Let's see if I am able to post #15 next.

29 Faces - #7

I started drawing this last night, absolutely hated it and tossed it in the waste paper basket.  Today I had a change of heart.  I don't like to give up so I wondered if I could salvage it to the point where I might like it just a little bit.  Maybe enough so I could post it on my blog.  I rescued it and started to work on it again.

Here is the amended product.  I don't love it.  I like it and I am not ashamed to post it now.  :)

29 Faces - #5

I scanned this face against a blue hazy background, but it's actually a paper cutout ormanent.  I need to glue a little loop on the back so that I can hang it somewhere.

I started out by scribbling some lines on a piece of paper with text, using pencil crayons, and then drew the face over it.  Hi-lights were achieved with the use of flesh coloured paint and a white ink pen.  The rest of it is paper I tore out of a glossy magazine.  I really love "painting" with papers.  :)

Half green, half red.  :)

29 Faces - #2

Another paper collage.  I was going to try another technique with paints, but just didn't feel like creating a mess on such a hot and humid day.

A New Challange - 29 Faces

Today I start a new challenge.  29 Faces.  I already create a face to practically everything I do, so the challenge for me is to create freely and quickly.  Not too much thinking involved this time.

So for the first effort, I did a quick sketch with a red marker and then hi-lighted it all with black and red pens and pencil crayons.  And a little white hi-light too with a white ink pen and a white charcoal pencil.  I glued it on to an image of a lovely traditional quilt.  Simple.  Done.  :)
