Today I have attempted something I've never tried before - drawing a face......I deliberated long and hard whether to blog this or not but have decided I have nothing to lose by sharing lol!
I took a manila tag and gave it a quick coat of chalk fresco paint. Then after practising on scrap paper I just went for it - unfortunately my slightly stern looking lady is a little off centre but never mind, I just carried on!
I gave her skin a coat of vanilla and added depth using blush, rose and a tiny touch of toffee. For her hair I used haystack and toffee.
The background is a wash of spanish mulberry which I over stamped with a quote from a Lin Brown set and the flourish from a hot picks set using distress inks in seedless preserves and rusty hinge.
I really enjoyed drawing her and hopefully if I keep practising faces I can start improving!
Thanks for stopping by today,
