Hello my friends,
This week I've been working on the lesson for week 36 of Life Book 2016, in which the fabulous Annie Hamman created a beautiful intuitive portrait with acrylic paints. It was fascinating to watch the process, as Annie showed us how to make a wet palette and mix our colours, then build the face in stages, starting with the darkest values and working towards the lighter values.
Annie made it look so easy, and I loved watching her painting unfold so much that I watched the lesson videos three times!! Putting the techniques into practice wasn't quite so easy, and my picture went through some VERY ugly stages, but I persevered until it got to a point where I could call it done and move on ...
When I saw this little person looking back at me the next morning, I found myself wondering who she is and what she is thinking - she looks a bit kind of wary and watchful I think. I would really like my next picture to come out happy, but I don't seem to have much control over how it turns out yet!!
Thanks for popping over today, see you again soon :o)
