In the midst of me telling myself that I should not be any more classes online….. because I am trying to keep up with the few that I have ongoing, I stumble upon this challenge. One of the artist that I love to keep up with , Annie Hammen, and see her creations, was doing a 30 faces in 30 days challenge. Me, not wanting to be left out of something fun, jumped right on board. They have prompts for each day, and it is fun to try to use that prompt when creating your new face. Of course time is to be considered and I found out that if I can sketch the face out and watercolor it, then this challenge may be doable and not take as much time. I am enjoying learning water color, and this will be a good way to help me practice as I learn.
This prompt was for white… I think I may have missed the point on this one, lol, as some people were doing kind of white out, faded looks but I took it as using white as one of the primary colors…
This is a very cool wood canvas that I ordered from Redeemed Doug, online. He takes old palette boards and sands and treats them for others to use for art. It is so smooth and so fun to paint on. This particular one is 8×10, with the sides boxed, about 1 1/2 inches., Doug had finished this piece to use for acrylic so that is what I used for her..
This girl was just thrown into the group, as one I had drawn before but never finished so with the watercolors out, I finished her up.
This one had the prompt of Animal spirits…
This one was prompted to be Twins
and this one was Wings.
Now, if you are interested in playing along, loo, look up Annie Hammen on facebook and join in the fun!
Linked with Sunday Sketches this week here.
Have a wonderful new week.
