WIP: 2/11 -2 Mixed Media

Busy weekend for painting this weekend.  “Practice makes perfect” and I am going full steam ahead with this.  I am submitting my art work for the first time at the member show this year with our local art council.  I have previously submitted my photography but this year it will be my artwork and I am really excited about this.  I haven’t decided what I am submitting yet, but I am enjoying the creative part of figuring that out!

This WIP is mixed media and a combination of Jane Davenport’s aqua pastels, prima pencils, pen and ink, scrap paper, windsor newton watercolors, charcoal pencils.

When She Becomes Alive

This is my favorite part.  I never really thought about it, but since I am painting more and more, I can’t help but notice the collection I have created.  I started documenting with my phone my progress in my art journal paintings.  This is a point that I feel I can stop and where I am.  I realized I had a collection and took a look last night of these stops, here are just some of them.  I’m grateful for starting with learning to draw a face.  For me, something comes out of me and goes into the face that I wasn’t aware was even there.  The eyes are a window into a soul so there comes a point when that window is looking back at me and I can relate to her and another process begins.  I never experienced this before or knew that I could.  In experiencing this, it doesn’t matter the end result, which is what I always thought was the most important thing, it’s not.  I love what I am learning in these paintings about the process, myself, and where I am going in this journey.  These eyes are not done and my current painting, but she is alive now 🙂

Not sure of her name

This week’s mixed media from my art journal.  A Girl and Her Fox. I’m doing a lot of practicing from reference photos and also from my own head and this is a combination of both.   I was also a lot more messy in this process and was trying to trust this process. I used watercolor, acrylic and digital elements.
