Working out of the journal again. This piece is on a piece of A4 mounting card that was lying around. I filmed the process with my trusty Brinno time-lapse camera because sometimes it's fun to see your own process when you don't always remember to take photos as you go along.
This face is done with Jane Davenport's method using gesso to blend water-soluble pastels, found in her book Drawing and Painting Beautiful Faces. I used Neocolor IIs.
I added the journalling afterwards, once everything was properly dry. It reads: Believe… that you are enough just as you are. It has obviously been playing on my mind, as it was the last spread in my 'From brain to veins' journal as well. (in my last post).
I'm sharing this at Paint Party Friday where all the lovely creatives are so encouraging. Thanks guys! I'll visit as many of you as I can even if I don't manage to comment everywhere.
