Loved the presentations for this challenge all about paint last week.As usual the ideas are juicy and stimulating. I have been a bit under par of late and feeling miserable because I haven't contributed anything to the challenge.
I wanted to demonstrate that the paint is such great quality to do portraits and have painted quite a few faces recently but not with PA frescos.
I started by gessoing my journal page and stencilled a few stars in Limelight, Zesty Zing and Mermaid.
Then I drew the outline of the girl with Stabilo pencil. I used French Roast first for the shadows. Then Mermaid. Added Bougainvillea in touches; Snowflake for highlights and Lilac. I played around with the paint for a while and then finished off with more Stabile pencil.
Finally, as a PA touch, I printed with some script and Watering Can Archival in her hair and an Ellen Vargo leaf stamp for her dress.
Not my best face, but it showed me that PA Frescos are super for portraits! I must have another go soon!
Thanks for looking!
