day 1 of 29 faces
i often start a new piece from paper or a canvas
that was perviously used. it feels familiar and
friendly to add paint or watercolor to substrate that
had a previous life. the other side of this heavy
watercolor paper is turquoise and embossed from the
imprint of rosemary and bougainvillea from my yard.
when i turned the the paper around i saw a lovely, soft
bleed through of color. i added bits and pieces of tea bag
which matched and created the darker edge of her hair. then
sketched in a soft face with pencil. i always like a challenge and
look forward to 28 more faces this month. click on the link to
