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.
I need a lot of practice with profiles, so I’m moving my face practice focus to developing my skill with drawing profiles.
Today’s prompt from #mabgraveshalloweenclub2019 was “cryptid.” I decided to honor the beautiful, mesmerizing trees across the street that were cut down. Trees are like people to me and my son, so it was very difficult to watch the demise of trees that had been a part of our view for nearly fifteen years. Sigh…
Since Mab Grave’s Drawlloween prompt today was tarot, I decided to incorporate my daily face practice into my interpretation of the ten of swords.
