Looking For The Blog Button?

If you want to wear the blog button with pride then hop on over to Show Your Face 31st July 2015 to grab it and there are instructions on how to put it on your blog there too.

My Share This Week…

This week has gone in a whirl and I did not have time to work to the ‘Inspired By’ theme again. I’m sharing a quick scribble in my junk journal that I’m calling ‘Hidden’. I think the green is making her look a little hulk-ish! She is a superwomen, so perhaps I can cheat and say she is following our theme this month and was ‘Inspired By’ comic book artists? What do you think?

Over To You…

Link your faces artwork and spread the word on your blog and/or social media, hashtag #ShowYourFaceFriday. Please do let anyone you think would be interested in sharing their portraits know about our community here.

Catch you later Face-Artinators

PS. Some other places you might want to link your work to: Painted pages share at Paint Party Friday. Art journal pages, check out the new theme at Art Journal Journey. Those of you on Facebook ask Darcy Wilkinson if you can join her Face To Face page.

My Share This Week…

Kim Dellow Show Your Face Watercolour share


I have not had much time to do my face practice this week. Although, I have managed to squeeze in a couple of playing with watercolours to draw features, but nothing complete or even that I like! So I’ve decided to call this week inspired by all the amazing people who make amazing portraits using watercolours.

My Share This Week…

Show Your Face share for 4th March 2016

My share today was inspired by Amanda Openshaw. I’ve been using a lot of teals recently, if you look back at my Show Your Face shares over the last few weeks a lot of them, most of them, include teal and if not teal then blue.

I mentioned this on facebook this week and Amanda said that she has been using a lot of reds and oranges and perhaps we should swap colours! So I took her up on the challenge and have gone with red and orange for my share today! Thanks Amanda for inspiring me out of by colour rut!

Over To You…

Link your faces artwork and spread the word on your blog and/or social media, hashtag #ShowYourFaceFriday. Please do let anyone you think would be interested in sharing their portraits know about our community here.

three quarter profile

Following on from last week’s profile for my Show Your Face share I thought I would go for a almost three quarters face. She is done with a Sakura Pigma Micron pen on a painted background. As a page I don’t think she is quite finished but I’m letting her sit for a bit to see what develops.

My Share This Week…

One of the things I like working on with my faces is light and shade, positive and negative space and that is my share this week. I played a little with light and shade in paint with my finger in my junk journal. I wasn’t going for true realism and perfect features, but more trying to imply form using light and shade.

This is great fun to try, I don’t use any guide marks or structure for these types of faces, I just let the face develop from the page and using my finger seems to help to switch off the part of my brain that likes structure and order. If you have never tried this type of painting faces give it a go, it is very freeing!

Unfortunately, I think my ordered brain did re-engage into the process as I found I started to fuss and put in detail lines with a palette knife so I stopped working on the page and just left it.

Tip for if you want to try this – use a page that already has a layer or two of paint and that you have not seen for a while so it is like you are seeing the page afresh.

Over To You…

Link your faces artwork and spread the word on your blog and/or social media, hashtag #ShowYourFaceFriday. Please do let anyone you think would be interested in sharing their portraits know about our community here.

Show Your Face

Hey lovely facers, this week has a been little busy for me here on my blog but please don’t worry if you ever come to my blog and can not find the Show Your Face post. Checkout the tabs at the top of the page, I’ve put in a shortcut so that you can find it straight away. The shortcuts should also show up on the mobile version of this page in the drop down menu under the blog title.

Have you had a chance to see my new video yet? Trish Latimer, editor of Craft Stamper, Tracy Scott, Clare Lloyd and myself have each shared a full tutorial on how we make our faces in real time. It is called  ‘Creating Faces’ and is available to buy now as a DVD, Bluray or via the Traplet online streaming/ download site. There is also a free introduction that you watch to see what the video is about.

Creating Faces Video

Last thing to mention before I let you get on to the link up, I’ve had a chance to update the schedule with lots of amazing prompt suggestions from Facers so mark them in your calendar.

My Share This Week…

If you want to know what you can do with the techniques I show in the new Creating Faces video then how about my Show Your Face share this week?

I’ve used the same basic technique for her as I demonstrate in the video, the only difference is that I’ve done this one in my junk journal on a painted page and used acrylic paint to colour her eyes, lips and hair band then blocked out the background to help her to pop from the page. In the video I use the Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolours/gouache paints to colour her eyes and lips and she is drawn on canvas board.

Learn How To Draw And Paint Mixed Media Faces

You all know that I’m pretty much obsessed with drawing and painting faces don’t you? If you are a regular to my blog then you can’t have helped but notice the weekly community art share link up that I host called Show Your Face. Well if you are fan too of drawing and painting faces on your mixed media projects and in your art journal then you are going to love this new Creating Faces video from the people who bring you Craft Stamper Magazine.

Trish Latimer, editor of Craft Stamper, along with three other designers Tracy Scott, Clare Lloyd and Kim Dellow (Hold on! That is ME!) are sharing how they create their mixed media faces in ‘Creating Faces’ the video, coming to a DVD player, Bluray player or the Traplet online streaming/ download site NOW!

Creating Faces Video showing how to add faces to your mixed media work

Ok so I might be getting a bit excited, I could hear that deep film announcer guy’s voice in my head just now (could you hear him too or was that just me?).

Anyway, I AM pretty excited because, well 1. I’m one of the designers sharing how I make one of my illustrative faces and 2. I’ve seen all the videos and they are pretty fab! Each designer shares all their tips and tricks and you get to see the whole process in real time.

If you are new to face drawing and painting each designer goes through all the steps they take from start to finish so it is a great place to start. If you are further along with your own face art there are plenty of techniques and tips to add your mixed media toolbox and adapt to your own practice.

 

Back cover of the Creating Faces video

Creating Faces is available in a choice of formats: £14.95 Bluray, £12.95 DVD £2.50 single download or £8.95 for all four downloads and you can find the Bluray and DVD in the Traplet shop and the downloads on the Traplet streaming/ download page.

But you might want to get yourself along to the Craft Stamper Facebook page as they are doing a GIVEAWAY!

Hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed putting it together.

Kim

 

*** 12th April 2018 Update – I am sorry to say that this video is no longer available. But in happy news, keep your eyes on my blog or my YouTube channel as I have some face videos coming later this year! ***

Hey Facers, it’s time for another share so I hope you have you eyes and faces at the ready!

First up the admin…

Schedule:

  • Focus On Eyes – January 2016 (break out of our normal practice and try different styles of doing eyes such as traditional, cartoon, manga etc. As suggested by Susana Magenheimer)
  • Inspired By – March 2016 (pick fellow Facers to inspire our work this month)

Feel free to let me know if you have any more themes or ideas for Show Your Face.

Don’t forget:

  • Show Your Face is a community link up for portrait work in any style or medium.
  • the aims are to share, learn, practise, inspire, and be inspired.
  • to make sure that the face artwork is yours, if you use any stamps or templates to build the face they should be designed by you.
  • the link is open from 10 am (BST) every Friday and stays open for a week, so link away.
  • finished pieces, works in progress or retro posts (i.e. older works, not from this week) are all welcome.
  • to link back to the link blog post here for that week.
  • Spread the word on your blog/social media outlets and use the #ShowYourFaceFriday hashtag in social media.

Looking For The Blog Button?

If you want to wear the blog button with pride then hop on over to Show Your Face 31st July 2015 to grab it and there are instructions on how to put it on your blog there too.

My Share This Week…

Back to a little bit of experimenting this week and I thought I would have a go at some quick ink sketches of different eye shapes and sizes.

Over To You…

Link your faces artwork and spread the word on your blog and/or social media, hashtag #ShowYourFaceFriday. Please do let anyone you think would be interested in sharing their portraits know about our community here.
