My word! When I started on this little portrait discovery thing I’m on at the moment I did not expect anyone to be really interested. So what a shock when you guys took the time out of your day to link up your wonderful work in my linky in last week’s blog post.
Thank you SO much! I’ve loved seeing all your lovely work it is really, truly inspiring.
But I’ve got to do a shout out for the wonderful Mo from So Much To Learn who really has championed this idea and has been spreading the word far and wide! Thank You Mo! You are a superstar!
So what about it? Shall we make this a thing?
Link up your face / portrait artwork to inspire and share all the wonderful faces you have been working on. It can be any face from the week just past or the week ahead. Haven’t got a face from this week? No problem! Link up one of your older pieces, that is fine too. The linky will be open from 10am Friday morning until the next Friday so add away through the week.
Show Your Face and shout it out! The more the merrier!
To get the ball rolling again this week I would like to share a couple of portraits from my week. If you follow my Instagram feed then you might have seen this pic:
I plucked up courage to try a self-portrait with acrylics but I made it super easy on myself and did it from a stylised photo that I had used to make an art journal page almost a year ago.
The second share is my first attempt at painting a face in watercolour.
This portrait started as a pencil sketch and then I sketched her out again onto watercolour paper and used Kuretake Gansai Tambi traditional watercolour to colour her.
I was aiming for wild hair, but it didn’t turn out quite how I had it in my head! But that is the journey. You live and learn!
You can tell I have been having fun with my portraits this week and I hope you have too.
Go on then – Show Your Face!
Link up below any of your portrait art work in any medium or style and shout it out, if you know anyone who would like to join in share this post and let’s inspire each other!
Don’t forget to visit the other links if you can and share some blog love too.
Can’t wait to see what you have been up to this week.
Catch you later Face-Artinators!
ps. If your art happens to be from an art journal page you have done this week then go link up with Julie Fei-Fan Balzer’s Art Journal Everyday post too!
