|GROW: mixed media on 12x16 140lbs watercolor paper.|
|Face detail: watercolor crayon, Prismacolor pencils, Acrylic paint, Black waterproof ink pen, White paint pen|
Nameste - Lynne
Making the face, following along with Tamara LaPorte on my Ipad
|First layer - watercolor crayons - just get something down so you can change it!|
|The beginning of hair... don't overthink it... you will add and change it a lot before you are done|
|Introducting acrylic paint and black and white pen details to the face|
|I kept working on face until I liked her|
|Adding collage background ... First Block... because I liked her so much I didn't want to Ruin Her.... Very normal... just keep going and DON'T fall in love with any stage until you are finished!|
|At this point I decided to paint out my wee birdie - it just wasn't resonating with me|
|I overstamped the entire background using Duylusions Paints and the brand new stamps I just carved on that morning|
|Drawing the hair back in which I had overstamped - I used Prismacolor pencils for this - and creating the vine from torn paper|
|Outlining the vine in white paint pen|
|Tracing the white with black lines to make them pop|
|Face too perfect (too flat?) so I added more shading and details to both face and hair to make them both softer|
|Something is missing... I fought my inner artist for while about this step, but finally decided to trust it and I accented my vine using Ranger Liquid Pearls|
|After much thought I picked the word "Grow" for this piece and for my 2016 Lifebook Journey.|
