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.
Today I returned to profiles and watercolors.
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.
For my Day 31 face practice and my Moonshine Full Moon art journal spread, I used a mix of watercolor and acrylic. I realized that I need to focus on profiles moving forward as even this small face took me way too long to create.
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.
