Friday evening post

Hello everyone! So nice to greet you on my blog, where I will show you some of the things, I'm working on at the moment.

I have bought new paper recently and as I used only half of an A3 sized sheet of 230 gsm/108 lbs Winton oil colour paper, I decided to use the rest for two small booklets. One with the theme: "A visit in Israel" and the other with "women/faces" I will only show a few of the sketches of faces I did for the second booklet just now.
I will work more on these faces, probably with gouache.

I also worked a little more on the last portrait I did for the 29 Faces challenge:

Still a lot to be done before it is finished, but the color suits her well, I think :-)
I wish you all a wonderful week end!

Sharing this with Paint Party Friday - thank you Kristin and Eva for hosting!

  14. Guten Morgen, liebe Ilona!
    Deine Zeichnungen sind wunderschön und ich frage mich gerade, mit welchem "Stift" sie gemalt wurden. Besonders das erste Gesicht gefällt mir sehr in seiner "Unfertigkeit", die mir als Betrachterin die Möglichkeit gibt, Dinge zu entdecken, die vielleicht gar nicht da sind... :) Es ist dieser Zustand, in dem noch alles passieren kann und ich bin schon gespannt darauf, wie es weitergehen wird.
    Ich wünsche Dir eine sonnige Herbstwoche!
    xoxo Erika
