faces this week 4-7

29 faces challenge

day 4

day 5

day 6

day 7

these were all re-dos from previously painted 

canvases or on heavy paper.  on paintings 5, 6 and 7.

i am remiss at not having taken before pictures.  

next time i will try to remember before i dig in. 

i am trying a different brush stroke and paint 

application.  i dip my brush into paint on both sides

of the brush and apply the paint quickly, trying 

not to get mud.  the canvas is pretty wet most of the time. i'm caught up.

day 3, 29 faces

i had this unfinished canvas for a while.

it was started in a workshop led by 

teesha moore.  she was very specific in her

lessons.  the papers are from her collage sheets.

acrylic ink was added

using bamboo and found sticks

then a little black gesso 

and white stabile pen with more

stick painting.

i will probably add more later.

but for now, i will stop.

day 2,  29 faces, february 2015

i have like this as a start but could not

see where to go with it.

but with 29 face paintings to do this month,

she was in the line up.  i started with 

the background.

changed the background 

and  worked on her face.

day 1, 29 faces challenge

this is a face i painted on a cradle board but 

did not like the whole composition.  i printed it

 and the face on an 8 x 8 watercolor paper

that i marbleized.  i continued to add  more 

layers of collage and paint.   she looks a little 

worried and might a bit of a smile.

i am posting my faces this month
with 29 faces.  thank you ayala.
