Day 6 29 faces challenge
Well today I completed a face. It did not quite turn out how I hoped but it is still pretty cool. I hope you like it. It is a face coloured with pencils (mostly polychromos with some Spectrum Noir. It did not cover the background quite as well as I had hoped. Oh well never mind.
The background is a combination of gesso, buff white and pans pastel dusted on using a brush then wiped with the paint brush to get the texture in the background. I then drew and coloured the girl using pencils. The hood and dark neck was painted last with acrylic paints. Even though it did not turn out as I expected it was fun to experiment. Perhaps next time I will draw the face before the background and do the background around the face, see if that gets a better result. Thanks for popping round. T x
