Experimenting

Lately, I'm having fun with trying out different techniques and ideas. Whenever I'm painting, I always smear the paint I didn't use on a page in my sketchbook/art journal (let nothing go to waste, right? ). Now I decided to make a drawing right on top of it. I first whitened the spot where the face would be with a bit of watered-down gesso, and then I just used my graphite and colour pencils. Got over it again with a brayer and some white paint afterwards because I thought it was too dark.

I still think it's too dark, but I'll leave it for now. Maybe I'll change it again later, maybe not...

  1. I'm checking out the beginning posts of your blog to see how you got started. I noticed no one commented on this one. I really like the brayer effect. I don't think it's too dark because the darkness adds to the effect. The blue almost glows. You have a huge admirer of your work here! Thanks for sharing so much of it.
