Welcome to Art It Friday – Show Your Face! Thanks so much for joining in last week and if you haven’t had a chance go check out last week’s shared faces.
Are you ready for your weekly portrait share?
Good! Let’s get sharing!
I’ve not had a lot of chance to do much portrait work this week but I did manage to have a bit of play with this portrait made on an art journal page.
She is based on last week’s blue watercolour face but this time I used a combination of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic paints and Gesso applied with a palette knife to make this painting.
Ooo what fun! So I ‘drew’ out the face roughly in Gesso then before it had dried added colour by adding more gesso but this time tinted with the DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics.
I liked the texture and there was something very organic about making the face with a palette knife.
The art journal page already had some gesso texture and the green colouring, which I’m guessing was acrylic paint but I had made the background such a long time ago that I don’t remember exactly what I used. But I love the way you can just see that layer peeking through the face.
How about you? What faces have you been drawing or painting this week?
Do share in the linky below. As before the face can be in any style and any medium as long as it is drawn, doodled, scribbled or painted and not done using a commercially bought stencil or stamp – well unless you designed that stencil or stamp that is!
Can’t wait to see your faces and don’t forget to shout it out, link to this post, share this post, let’s build our face community.
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!
