Here it is Paint Party Friday already. My life is so busy that days just fly by. I know, you have heard me say this before but it is true. LOL Tonight I have a mix bag of art. The last is a portrait started in graphite and then finished up with charcoal. I have a lovely set of charcoal supplies and thought I should try it. It is not as easy as graphite, anyway in this first stage of learning.
Any tips I will gladly accept.
So first here is another piece for my exhibit. I have just under a month to get it all together. I still have to trim
Nicole's BeadBacking off the sides. I use it to make a soft bottom on the wooden base.
I have been making yarn balls. Only I have used other materials like this one with Nicole's BeadBacking, (NBB). It was a bit tricky because NBB is a dense fabric. But it worked.
Start with a balloon paint it with glue water. Then dip strips of NBB into the glue water and place on balloon and allow to dry.
Repeat the process until you have what you like.
Now here is the portrait. Not one of my best but learning always produces some that I will look back on and say.... What was I thinking? LOL
Honor and integrity in art, in life.
