Words Painting By Numbers

This PA challenge about words has captured my imagination. I am enjoying thinking of different ways to display words.
I collect magazine pics and remembered that I had a simple drawing of a face in a make up advert.
I drew my own simplified version in my journal using an ordinary pencil.



Next, I went over the lines with Stabilo Black Aquarellable pencil and probably because my Grandson George has enjoyed creating his own dot to dot pictures recently, I numbered the lines!


Next, I selected a few PA fresco paints and dabbed the paint through a dotty stencil for a kind of frame.
I went over my stabile lines with a wet paint brush to darken them and added some fresco colour to the face.
Finally, I wanted to suggest hair with words and it seemed a good idea to write "Painting By Numbers", which was a popular painting set for nervous artists when I was little!
A little quirky but good fun creating it! love it when you start something and have no idea where it will end up!


My lovely friend Mo @Massofhair has suggested that I link this to Kim Dellow's Hand drawn faces on a Friday too, so here goes!

  1. Really 'different', Hazel! I love the numbers idea! I remember having a kit for my birthday and the lovely smell of the little tubs of oil paint! I wanted to create my own pics, though and not merely stick to the numbers! You've created your own subversive version here! i love it! xxx
