Art Journal easy technique

How to add hair to a painting. Art collaboration

I am in an art collaboration with Britta Mindart.dk in Denmark and Sue in Scotland, so much fun! It is the FITW (face in the world) an art collab where each of us finishes the starting paint of the other in a team of 3.
In this video I make a very simple way to add colorful hair to a portrait.
Let me know what you think, and say hello in the channel if you can ♥

Dear 3 readers

By now it is more than obvious that I am not keeping up with my blogging.
The moving in the middle of the 29 challenge was hard enough, but this unpacking and getting used to a new area, a few things not working properly, weather (dryer and with tons of mosquitoes) 😐 and still unpacking, has proven a bit too much.
Here are some updates:
Surprisingly, I did finish the 29 faces.
My birthday was a few weeks ago, and my daughter turned 19.
I have opened more boxes that I can believe.... and I am not done yet!
Every little thing that could've been wrong, did indeed go wrong. We didn't have beds for days so we remained in a hotel. No internet either, so I felt lucky to have a Starbucks near by, even if I'm not a big coffee drinker :oS

I have been trying to see it as an adventure, but I am yet to clear and organize my art room and that is very stressing.

Anyway, I hope I can settle soon, it is really draining.
Mostly, I have been aiming my attention to my channel, so if you want to see what I'm up to, please visit HERE
Thank you very much for stopping by, I hope you have a blessed rest of the day ♥

Finally images, and a video!

So here are 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21 ...
As you can see I made a lot of digital images. Not my cup of tea and stretching out of my comfort zone....  still a lot of fun!

15, 16, 17... 18?

As you probably know by now, we have been in the chaos of moving. Everything that could take longer or go wrong, did go wrong and took longer...
I lost track of how many faces I have made so far, because I posted some in one network but not another , and not here in the blog either... But I will be checking and trying to finish on time.

I cannot figure how to post my images from my iPad... Did I tell you we can't find my monitor yet?
This will be funny sometime in the future 😐

For now I will show you a picture of our cat in his old favorite spot.

Thanks for stopping by!

Face 14 of 29 faces

This one face was a "stain" as well, but the color was so light, I decided to keep working with m pencil. Whenever I keep working on it, it will be a pretty face, I can tell from now. ;o)


Thanks for visiting! Are you keeping up still?
The hardest part is the posting, I think!

Face 13 of 29. More messy brushwork

I am allowing myself just a few brush strokes  per page.  It looks crazy lol
I am hoping to have more time in the near future to work the next steps, but for now, this is where I am stopping :o)

Face 11 of 29 faces. Messy face

What elements make a face, a face? When does a splash turn into a face?
I am really enjoying painting the minimum  to make a face look like a face.
It is hard for me, loving detail so much, but if you try it, it is a good exercise, and you can always come back and do your familiar thing.
For this challenge I always like trying abstracts and stopping to see what is happening at that time on the composition and the face.

No art today

In honor of the 9/11 tragedy, I do not post art today.
I read that this generation starting high school this fall, is the 1st one that will hear and learn about the 9/11 before they were born. So it was not part of their lives, and yet, we all were marked one way or another in this nation and in the world. Things are done much different now, after that and not really for the better.
I will continue with my challenge tomorrow.

How are you doing in your challenge? We are starting the 2nd week!
For this week if you like a prompt, try to change the size of your work. If you work on a small scale, try to make a larger face, and if you paint big, try a miniature.
I am trying expressions and you can tell she is not happy lol

This is the beginnings of face 6:


And the 7th, which I will make more, based on a simple stain:

29 faces in September 01

I am a bit early, but really, I have to! lol  Next week it will be super busy adjusting to the challenge, the first few days are always busy, and then it takes its own rhythm.

For my first day I made this for Gina's traveling journal, and I will be posting the video later on, but it was a lot of fun!!

What are you going to do to challenge yourself?
I usually do very lose paintings, since most of the time I tend to paint tight, and there is nothing wrong with either, but it is good to get out of the comfort zone, to discover new things!

Please remember to use the tags/Labels in your posts! ;o)

This is a bit different for me, it is not painting, but it is such a fun thing to do for children of all ages --including our inner child!-- in the summer ... actually, in fall and winter too! Who am I kidding lol
It is just simply a lot of fun!

Acrylic paint comparison: student grade vs pro

When it comes to buy acrylic paint what is ok, better or worse?
Acrylic paint comparison: student grade vs pro. I am not getting exactly into brands, but into levels of paint.

I have my favorite brands but sometimes I try new stuff specially when they are on sale, but as you will see, it is not always a good deal :oP
