A More Interesting Face
Face 23 was created with Neocolor II watercolor crayons. I had major problems with this, I may have to try the image again on different paper. I had too much water on the page and almost got a hole in it. Very frustrating.
Next I wanted to do a more interesting face. I got out the Sennelier oil pastels, oh I love these tools. I first heard about them from Mystele and she told me how she loved their creaminess. She is so right they are wonderful and blend so well. I am slowly building up a collection of colors. I really wanted paynes grey today but didn't have it so that goes on the list.
I think of her as a wise peasant woman, I would like to do more faces with character. All the magazine images I use for inspiration show young women. I think its time I started to portray another kind. I can see a new Pinterest board in the making.
