Today I share two pieces with you. They are inspired by a young woman I know, who is participating in a world wide beauty contest.
The first piece is a pencil sketch in my square portrait sketchbook. I sketched after a photograph with her natural look:
The second piece is a mixed media painting, sketching her face with charcoal, using a glue stick to smudge it out some and redrawing with a graphite stick and charcoal. I collaged the "dress" and painted the gold and white acrylic mix to the background and finished it all off with some doodles.
Sharing this with Paint Party Friday
Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
A special wish for well being and healing to all of you who are suffering illness, small or big!
