FOLLOW ME TO
MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

29 Faces challenge- faces 4,5,6 and 7

Well I'm behind with the 29faces challenge.... nothing new there then lol... I just don't know where the hours or days are disappearing too.  Someone is stealing them... I swear they are!!
I've done the creating... but there hasn't been enough time to blog everyday, I think I just get so involved with my art that I lose conscious hours.
So here are the four that bring me up to date today:-
 
1st a journal page... girl coloured with pencils over clear gesso...
 

2nd a pencil sketch which I have to admit to having started earlier in the year, was completed.....


Next a bit of whimsy and acrylic paint... I love changing mediums... jack of all trades... master of none :)


Finally a watercolour face which I so enjoyed doing but I'm still learning to control the water.

 
I have to say that I honestly admire those naturally talented portrait artists in any medium who don't have to work too hard to be able to paint a likeness... I am moving forward but I have to practice and practice and practice and I feel like I am YEARS away from being content with what I have achieved or maybe I am just too much of a perfectionist and am aiming for the stars :)

hugs

All your faces are beautiful. I think you are a bit of a perfectionist but that is how Artists are.
