But since I painted all the different colours in there, I keep discovering faces. Mostly profiles, but still. So I decided to just go with the images that appeared to me. But how? Sandra Kaye used a black Sharpie-marker to draw her flowers, but I'm afraid that the black is going to make it too dark. I still like the result though. So I decided to try two different styles in my journal. The first one with figures lined with black:
I made the background a bit less chaotic by painting it with gesso and then adding a transparant colour to it.
The second one is using different colours for the contours of the figures, and only use black very sparingly:
To be honest, I'm still not sure which technique I should use. So I would love to know what you think! Black lines or no black lines (or at least not many). I'm really curious as to how you would do it :-)
I did bring out a few figures in the bathroom already. They just kept jumping out at me, and I really wanted to start. I didn't use black for these (except for the eyes), because it's easier to put some black on top than take the black away.
It is going to take a (long!) while before I finish it, but it's so much fun :-)
Here are my funnies for this week:
Okay, time to go to sleep! I'm linking this to Paint Party Friday. Thanks so much for your visit, and please let me know which method you like most: black or no black. I'm really curious :-)
Enjoy your day and make the weekend a good one! See you next week ♥ ♥ ♥
