I must say that my first six days back in the classroom have been fun and interesting. I finished this page tonight. I had started it several days ago and I hadn’t felt like working on anything until tonight. This page began with a coat of black gesso…I’ve never worked with it before. Going from dark to light was a challenge for me. I used Caran d’Ache crayons along with the collage papers. Do you recognize the inside of security envelopes I used around the face? The face could have been a little smoother but I couldn’t get the effect I wanted without totally wiping out everything, so I just left it. No words can say how tired I am tonight.
