Hello Friends! We are 4 weeks into the new year!
I think I may have finally gotten over my fear of dark values! Yay! I created her using graphite and charcoal pencils.
Today was just one of those days where nothing went as it should. I made 3 different girls today. My plan was to do an Imperfect Girl inspired by Petra Steins Class in Let’s Face It. Petra using a blending technique that is super challenging and for some reason I just can’t seem to wrap my brain around it.
However after about 4 hours of fighting with her I had a melt down. Crying and so upset why I could not figure it out…soo I am not proud of this but I did promise to show you the ups and downs of my journey……
Yes, in a fit of frustration I covered her face in black paint. Ha ha ha ha….I then took my oil pastel crayon and drew a happy face. I actually kind of love the look of this. So after I painted her face black I took a deep breath, I realized that I really love drawing faces. I enjoy painting them but my heart sings when I am drawing.
So instead of painting I drew a girl from my imagination. It was so relaxing and fun and I just love how she turned out.
And here she is completed
