Painted Faces in Art Journaling
I especially enjoyed this week's challenge which is to create a face using paint. One of my face painting idols is Katie Kendrick...she rocks the faces! When I create faces, they are not perfect but abstract. I think that is why I am drawn to Katie's work. I adore her faces, with their odd shaped heads, long noses and amazing eyes! Be sure to check out her blog and you will see exactly what I mean.
I began my page by finger painting areas with acrylic paint to begin the basic shape of my face. From there I added in other colors, paper, pencil and doodle marks.
The face that emerged became know to me as "Louis" and don't you just love his ridiculous old fashioned powdered wig!? I used a "flower" stamp to create it.
Have a blessed day!
