last week's look {portrait too}


good morning! this was me waiting for the morning lesson to begin...


and this lovely line drawing girl would become and consume; she would be worked


she would start in watercolor....and would move to gesso and some acrylics


 and she would transition and change to become who she was meant to be

happy thursday.

delipaper art


 i had taken additional pics with my phone, but, my computer is not working with me this morning and i cannot get those to download?! (*#@!!) sorry......

i am using a square sheet of deli paper. i did order my pack of deli paper off of Amazon; and there was a variety of shapes and sizes.


i then gesso'd my sheet using an edge of a credit card just like i would for anything else i was working on- paper, canvas, wood, etc. it doesn't have to be perfect and i do not do the whole sheet; most simply the main area of where i will be working.


i then used a stabilo pencil to do the initial face. i also used hi-flow acrylics and regular acrylics. i did use gold ink and charcoal and went back in with the pink pastel when i was very close to being done. i also used just a black ball point pen for some scribbled face line and lip and eye details and a smidge of collage papers.


happy monday.

cardboard portrait {too}


i had so much fun making my first one, i decided to work this into a series. so i made three more portraits. each was a slightly different size and shape with different top paper ripping off to reveal the variegation below.


i used hi-flow acrylics for the eyes; and white pen, charcoal and pencil for some details.


i loved the textured feel of this one and the overall colors.


happy wednesday.

cardboard portrait


in one of my FB group, our challenge this time was to make a portrait on cardboard. i was feeling a little rusty as i have not had much studio time this past month; but, once the gesso was on the paper, the paint flowed and ran, and she appeared.


cardboard, gesso, acrylic paint, pencil, watercolor crayon, hi-flow ink, pen, charcoal


i was very happy with how she turned out. i can only hope my swap partner likes it as much as i do!
