My Creative endevours have moved

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 :)

29 Faces in September

It's that time again Ayala is doing another 29 faces challenge.  I loved the last one so I just hope I can keep up this month and manage to blog every face.  I can but try :)  I will share a mixture of styles of faces depending on what time I have available.  I hope you will join me.  Here are my first three cos I've had company staying and haven't had chance to blog until today.

I decided to use up some backgrounds that I already had done in my journal for the first two faces because that made them quick and easy :)

The third face is a WIP and a bit of an accident... well not the face... just the flowers.  I somehow got a mark on the paper when I was drawing which would not erase at all.  It was a bit high to turn into a beauty spot but as I'd done so much work I didn't want to leave it looking awful so I drew flowers.  Not sure if I like them but it's better than a horrible mark and I did like the face.  Lessons learned... rest on a blank sheet of paper in future.

Thanks for looking
