This is my new moon spread for Effy Wild’s Moonshine course. I originally created something similar in Procreate (see second photo), and now that I’m feeling more confident in my abilities thanks to my daily face practice, I decided to see if I could recreate it in my art journal. I’m really happy with the results. I used QOR and Daniel Smith watercolors along with acrylic paint.
Day 45/100 Faces – I decided to redraw yesterday’s face. The sketch turned out differently, but it was close enough. Used watercolor and Tombow dual brush pens this time.
Day 44/100 Faces – I added color to this one, but the paper didn’t hold up and neither did the supplies I used. I spent several hours trying to recover her, but it didn’t work out so well. Luckily I took a photo of the pencil sketch. I may try this same face again tomorrow to see if I can do better.
Today I continued my profile practice and used Tombow dual brush pens and Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.
I just realized I forgot to post my faces for the last couple of days. Today I spilled water on my sketchbook and ruined a couple of them, but luckily I had taken photos!
Another profile today done with Ecoline brush pens, Elegant Writer pen, and black and whit Stabilo-all pencils. She looks very witchy to me 🙂
Today I returned to profiles and watercolors.
Playing catch-up after taking two days off for my birthday (which was fabulous!).
Today’s face did not go well. I worked on it for a long, long time, but no matter what I did, it kept getting worse. So, I decided she was done.
For today, I continued my profile practice. I want to give a shoutout to the artist Karen Campbell for her amazing instruction on drawing profiles. Her instruction made a huge difference.
For this face I made a pencil sketch and then used watercolors, Ecoline brush markers, black and blue elegant writer pens, black Faber Castell pen, and black and white Stabilo-All pencils.
