The past few days have been gorgeous…a pleasant and welcome change from last week’s temperatures in the single digits. Hubby had a doctor’s appointment yesterday and after that, we went out for a Valentine’s Day lunch. While driving back, we noted that almost all the snow was gone except for some spots in shady north slopes. I think I’m getting spring fever! I’m sure that will change and winter isn’t finished with us yet.
I started this page in my Strathmore journal yesterday evening after we got back home and finished it this morning. I tried a different approach….I drew the face with a graphite pencil and then used some colored pencils to shade, etc. I went over all that with clear gesso and let that dry. I used acrylics paints…yellow, blue and red with lots of white. I glued down the collage pieces. The flowers and leaves were from some patterned tissue paper that I’ve had so long I don’t remember where I got it. I never know what to do about hair. I planned to glue down some more tissue paper but ended up using my black Stabilo pencil all around the page. I used lots of water to give a watercolor effect. Have a great day wherever you are and whatever you are doing!
