Moleskine Face -#6

I’m still obsessed with drawing faces.  This is my face of the day.  I started with two shades of blue colored pencils on the background.  I used the blue pencils along with a violet one on the face.   I mixed white acrylic paint and  a touch of Cerulean blue and covered  almost all the colored pencil background.  I left a tiny bit of the dark pencil showing around the edges of the bubbles.  The face is Titan Buff, glaze, and white paint mixed with the pale blue to make a  more pale shade of blue.  After all the paint dried, I covered both pages with clear gesso.  Then I sanded the face with a very fine sandpaper and went over it again with colored pencils.  I originally planned to cut the fish from some collage paper but  later decided to make lines all over him.  This face is my favorite of all the ones I have done thus far.  I have signed up to take Sharon’s class that starts this Friday.  Her Ning site is  All Norah’S  Art…go here to read about it:

    I agree with you about this one….I think it’s my favorite so far. Love the almost monotone color and yet there’s depth and contrast. Fantastic!!!

    Gorgeous face! This reminds me very much of Shijun Munn.

    I like all your face paintings. Sorry I haven’t commented much lately, but I have been around to read and look. Your faces are enchanting.

    What a delightful page! I like everything about it – the face, colors, little fish, circles and words. I’ll stay a bit longer to look at it. 🙂
