On we go with the 29 Faces!!
Please meet Rose - I called her Rose because she reminds me a little bit of Rose in "Downton Abbey". I know she doesn't look like her, it's just that something reminds me of her.
She was done with Caran d'Ache watercolor crayons. I like to work with them more and more - they are easy to blend and it's just plain fun to play around with the color.
After I had scanned Rose, I played a little bit in Photoshop, I couldn't help myself. Here she is in black & white, probably what she would look like if I had used charcoal and the graphite water soluble pens by Faber Castell, one of my new favorites.
Then I added a texture because I was just curious what Rose would look like with that. I think it added some interest to it.
Today's face is the "splatter girl". I just sprayed some ink sprays on watercolor paper and then added the face with a black PITT pen. The spray inks are not permanent, so when I went in them with a gray PITT pen the color would spread. I liked the effect and think I will do something like that again.
I like all the experimenting and playing that 29 Faces provides. It's not overwhelming - today's face didn't take longer than 30 minutes - and I start to loosen up with it and play more. It's fun!
