I found great inspiration from the new launch blog about faces last night, and really enjoyed Kim Dellow's rendition tonight and want to try a line drawing face like hers.....but..Fresco colours and a dramatic interpretation was my goal tonight! Also, I wanted to apply some of the colour with a palette knife!
I drew my face and started like Dina Wakley, adding dramatic shadow! Bit scary, but could paint over it.
Next, I filled in the colours using every fresco paint colour under the sun! I worked and worked on it and, at times, was losing the plot! But, I carried on working and working until I felt happy!
I found the eyes the most difficult.
Finally, I applied some paint with a palette knife, particularly in the hair!
I had a great time and feel like I hit the back of the net! That's what its all about...having fun and getting excited!
I shall enter this into the PA challenge...and it would be rude not to include it in Kim Dellow's face on Friday!
