Art It Friday – Show Your Face

Yay Facers! It is good to see you for this week’s portrait community share Art It Friday – Show Your Face.

If you haven’t had a chance then go check out the amazing works from last week, some great inspiration if you haven’t done your face for this week yet.

I was worried I wouldn’t have a face to show this week, as I’ve been super busy with deadlines, but I made it by the skin of my teeth!

So I mentioned on Monday that I was trying to sort out my workspace, right? Get rid of all those bits of paper that I just can not throw out? Well this art journal page is another step in that direction.

Art Journal portrait with Stabilo and water

I’ve used up some leftover bits of digital papers that I had designed for some magazine work. After sticking the papers to my art journal I then added a layer of gesso. She was sketched out roughly with pencil then the details painted with a black Stabilo All surface pencil and a waterbrush.

So she has something old, she herself is new and she has digital too so I’m linking her to the Old, New and Digital Too challenge as well as the link up’s mentioned in the ps. below.

So that is my share for this week,

Over To You…

You know what you need to do! Link your faces artwork and share the word on your blog and/or social media

Looking forward to seeing your portrait work.

Catch you later Face-Artinators!

ps. If your art happens to be from an art journal page then go link up with Julie Fei-Fan Balzer’s Art Journal Everyday post. Or if it involves paint then link it up at Paint Party Friday.

  9. Karen Petitt

    Gorgeous background Kim! I never think to use paper that way – so now I have quite a lot of ideas pinging in my brain. I think I'm going to have to get the gesso out and start adding colour to my sketches – not sure why I am but I feel freer with just a pencil. Another great link up so thank you – going off to visit some peeps now x

    1. Kim Dellow

      I'm so glad Karen that you are enjoying the link up and gathering ideas as you go. Our face obsession is being put to good use LOL πŸ™‚ Have a lovely weekend and keep the pencil work coming πŸ™‚ Kx
