I finished a 2nd face painting on a 4 x 4 studio canvas. Well, I shouldn't say finished because she has problems and needs repair.....mostly she's going to have a nose job done and hopefully she won't need a whole face lift/reconstruction when she gets it! I'm going to show her tonight anyway and then when and if she's all fixed, then I can show the difference. In my mind she was going to be a gift but she didn't turn out good enough so some poor birthday fairy is going without a gift. If I can do the nose job right, then maybe it'll be a gift again. LOL!
I have to say that Sharon's (All Norah'S art) class is just wonderful and her instruction videos are clear, easy to follow and fun. Doesn't mean that I follow along and make instant perfect faces as there's a learning curve to learning to paint more free and with a bigger brush and lighter paint. But it's fun and I'm starting to get it. I love being able to see what all the other members are doing. Some of the first time painters are just amazing with their faces! When I thought about that, I actually did better painting way back when I knew nothing at all and simply bought a pattern book, some oil paints and decided to paint! I painted on any wood I could my hands on and I didn't do so bad....even sold a lot! But now, I out-do myself, worry too much, want to be perfect and try too many things all at the same time. I want to go back and just be free to do art again.....good or bad....just art....but still learn to be better at it. I do need to go back to the basics.....the basics I never started with, just jumped in and painted!
So here she is for now. I hope I can fix her and show her again! Click for a bigger view.
