I've been working in my Permission to Play Journal.
The point to this journal is to not worry about the outcome of the pages.
Which is a good thing considering the way this page went.
I am so careful when painting my portraits ( You will notice I have started calling them
portraits instead of girls lol!) and because I was working in
my Journal I started out with 'abandon'.
I was toying with the idea of sharing my first 'process' pic but it
was so bad I couldn't bring myself to,
This is the first 'acceptable' version of it.
The eyes were beyond redemption. I used oil pastel so I couldn't cover them with gesso
so I covered them up with book paper.
A little more work with oil pastel on the face and some acrylic paint on the background.
I am so pleased it turned out better than what I thought at the beginning.
That's the great thing about mixed media. If you keep layering you can
usually (but not always) save things.
I would love to hear your thoughts. I really appreciate your comments.
