Making Faces...

Don't you just love it when everything comes together.
I'm feeling good today.

It's a lovely sunny (but cold) Monday here today and although I haven't been outside yet, 
I have taken advantage of the lovely light thats flooding in.
I've been busy busy, I've done four small postcard size mixed media pieces.
It's amazing how much I can get done when I sit down to do it (without distractions of course).
I get 'into the zone' and the time just flies.
I don't even think about food - and that has always got to be a good thing right?

I'll shush now and show you.

She's got a collage background, just random stuff,
 then she's been painted on and topped up with color pencils.
From a distance she looks as though she has been done with pastels but I can assure you it's just crayons.

This one is just paint, marker pen and pencils.

This one is like the first I showed you, collage background, pencil crayons etc.
The only difference with this one is that I used more paint, especially gesso.
I like the effect very much, and I really love how the crayons have worked out on the surface.

This was done the same way...
think this is my new favorite way.

I'm really loving these,
I think I can feel a new 'direction' coming on.

Gorgeous!! I had a less successful Arty day. Tried to paint a rabbit for the Alice in wonderland challenge and it looks diseased :( Into the garage for another day :)

Hi Sigga,
Thank you, I'm pleased that you love them. Time? well at the moment I'm still at home from work but that's all going to change in the next few weeks. I'll be returning to my full-time teaching job, so it WILL be a real challenge for me to fit it in. This taste of the artists life has left me hungry for more.
