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.

posting today with paint party friday
