Some faces

Today I want to share a few pieces/portraits. The first one is a bird I painted for a friend on Facebook.
It is painted with acrylics and oil pastel on a fabric background.


Yesterday I finished this little print and water colour with some lines with my Pitt ink pen, keeping it quite simple :-)


The next two pieces are monochromatic water colour portraits I did about two weeks ago. I think the Paine's grey I used for this is very effective. I like the nuances you can create with it. 



Lastly I want to share this mixed media piece I have drawn and painted in my new furniture catalogue art journal. I used pastels charcoal, acrylics and coloured pencils.


I hope you like the show today, I really loved working with these pieces!
Wish you all a fun party at: PAINT PARTY FRIDAY
And thank you to Kristin and Eva for hosting the mega event :D

  19. Wonderful work Ilona. I love the little Robin, he is so sweet! Your three different portrait styles are beautiful, I love them all, and what a great idea to use an old catalogue as a journal (top tip!)
    Also, I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for the beautiful flower painting, it was such a kind and thoughtful gift that I will treasure:)

  24. Oh Ilona, I was sure the bird was a photograph!!!! Your acrylics are STELLAR!!!! The other mediums are absolutely beautiful - my goodness you are talented. I love the unique variety you are able to bring to your blog...it is so teachable. I think I looked at each one for 2 minutes, trying to figure out the details of your work. I figure that is true success on your part to intrigue the viewer. Just beautiful - absolute joy Ilona! Thanks for that and HPPF. Lovies, Samara
