Face no. 20: get out of my hair!

Technically, I have 2 faces today. But I'll only count it as one. I didn't mean for it to be two. But when I wanted to start drawing her hair, I saw 2 eyes and a mouth. And, well, me being me, when I see a face in the background, I have to draw it. Can't help myself ....


The colours came out all weird when I scanned it. It's painted on one of the backgrounds that I made when experimenting with my self-made gelli-plate. Here's the post about it. For this background I used some of my daughter's really bright neon-coloured paints. And in the scanner, somehow, all the neon got lost. I managed to get it to look a bit more like the original by playing with the colours in Photoshop, but in reality this is much brighter, more neon orange and pink


I am still playing with the idea of putting a quote on there, but for now I'll just leave it as it is.

Thanks for having a look, and for taking the time to comment. I appreciate it ♥

See you tomorrow with face # 21 !

  2. I love the textured background and the lovely swirly hair! I like neon colours but haven't been quite brave ebough to use them on a painting yet, only in my sketchbook. I'd love to see this in real life. :)xx

  5. Ik moest al lachen bij de titel :-) en bij de tweede foto begreep ik het pas helemaal. Wat een originele tekening en echt iets voor jou! Dit is echt jouw kracht Denise; jij laat het ook gewoon gebeuren en dat krijgt hele verrassende resultaten. Prachtig gedaan! Tot morgen.
    Liefs,

  13. You always do such great hair (you should do a video tutorial, seriously!) I love the way your paintings evolve and take on their own life. I must do a Flora Bowley workshop just for the inspiration I think :)
