I spent some time today painting these two faces that I drew some time ago. I haven't painted faces for quite some time, so it was fun to try it again. I don't think I am quite finished with the one above yet. But, I am done for now. The process I used was to photocopy and transfer my drawings on to watercolour paper (which created some "holes" in the paintings) and then I painted them with watercolour crayons, and some acrylic paints.
The words on the top one say "whatever you can do or dream you can begin it. boldness has a genius, power and magic in it. begin it now" J.W. Goethe
The bottom one may get some words yet. They will both probably get sewn to a piece of coloured paper and a layer of wax on yet. I haven't added the wax yet, as I am not sure if they are finished. Once they have the wax on they have to be finished (or it is harder to change them after that) I will see.......
