More Faces to Share

This is face number 26 so far this month.  I created her in my mixed media paper journal using Shiva Paintsticks.  These are oil paint in a stick.I use my finger to blend them and a q-tip when I needed smaller details. This did not turn out anything like I had planned.

This one was a quick sketch with soft pastels, those cheap kids ones. They smear so easily whether you want them to or not.  I did find I could pull off unwanted smears with a rag. I only have 2 more faces to make to my goal which is great. Its been fun but I am ready to focus on something else for awhile. You are probably tired of seeing them too.


  1. Nope...not tired of seeing the faces. I've enjoyed seeing all the different techniques you've used. I have a few Shiva paintsticks but haven't used them much. Now I want to pull them out and see what I can do.


I love and appreciate receiving your comments.
