Not only am I practicing some techniques for drawing faces but I am also learning new words, like impetus. For someone like myself this combination is heaven!
a moving force; impulse; stimulus:
The grant for building the opera house gave impetus to the city'scultural life.
(broadly) the momentum of a moving body, especially with referenceto the cause of motion.
Yes, I am enjoying day 2 of Jane Davenports book called Drawing and Painting Beautiful Faces. I am picking up some pointers on drawing hair which has always been, well, not difficult, but stifling for me? I am trying to be looser and more flowing and Jane definitely has that down to a T.
I love using my previous backgrounds I created using my Gel Press® plate along with the alcohol inks. The blog post for making this background can be found HERE. I used the one on the right...the one on the left is too pretty to cover up...so far. lol
I love the way the designs from the alcohol inks rise up through the acrylic paint so you get all that painterly layering...the easy way! I chose to do the white highlights in the eyes with lettering, and yes it's hard to read but I really like how it looks. It says..I have impetus...
Thanks for stopping by and I hope we all have impetus today.
Make your move in the right direction today!
Love this one even more than yesterdays
ooooh lovely I have Jane Davenports beautiful faces too. I love her style. You have captured your style fantastically using her techniques. Great stuff :) T x
You are rocking these!
What a way to start my morning. A cup of coffee and your beautiful blog. Thank you for my inspiration today.
