I simply do not have the time to do daily faces, I work incredibly slowly and it puts me under too much pressure. however i really want to do more faces, practice more, learn new techniques...so I plan on doing a weekly face.
So here is Face 1
After watching a show on ustream, August 2012, I started this old lady painting. For one reason or another it didn't get finished, and sat in my book for a whole year. Then Jay, who had done the original show on ustream created a pdf to go with the show, and this prompted me to finish mine.
HERE... is his blog where you can find a link to his instruction.
I am afraid mine came out nothing like his lol, but at least she is finished.
Last year I had drawn her out using a grid method.
Then I added the darkest areas..
and next mixed up several browns for her skin..
adding more and blending..this is the point at which it got left...
So when I went back to it, I added more layers and eventually ended up with this. She is as finished as I can make her. i really don't know how to add in the wrinkles in her skin, and don't want to ruin what is there. So I am calling this one done.
I will be back next Wednesday with another face. some weeks I will have step by step photos, and others I may just have the end photo....that will all depend on whether I have remembered to take photos along the way lol
If you would like to join in each Wednesday then blog your face and link up here.
