i love fridays.   kristin and eva have set up a weekly

online party they call paint party friday.  i get to visit 

friends, see what they have been creating and if i am lucky,

they visit me as well.  

this week i have been working on a series.  i first applied

black gesso to boards.

then sketched faces on each.

i am going to paint and do pen work.

for now, i am letting them sit

and enjoy this friday.  

anyone who has never made a mistake

has never tried anything new

  1. Irene, this looks exciting! I've never worked with black gesso. I can't wait to see what you do with these fabulous sketches.

    1. hi faye, i understand that if you need to retouch some of the black gessoed areas, it is seamless and you cannot see where a demarkation of the previous layer. i like that!

  2. They are really beautiful! Valerie

  3. Looking forward to seeing the progression. Looks cool so far!

  4. Irene these are very very cool.....can't wait to see more!
