That’s really what we all need in life, a flower behind our ear – to make us feel pretty! I’m calling this wise old lady done and moving on to other things. I could work at it for longer, but, I know I have a tendency to be ‘tight’ in my work and I actually kind of like the fact the green Shizen Paper peeks through in places. Shizen has been awesome for depicting soft skin as a texture and this one has helped me get to know the capabilities of my small box of Faber-Castell Pastels, Stabilo Carb Othello Pastel Pencils and how to give a touch here and there of my newly acquired Sennelier Pastels (so, so, soft and oh so, so, intense!) Thanks to Pixabay for the reference…that site has been a treasure trove for me, lately, and I like to go and put in whatever idea pops into my head and see what it gives me…the search terms I used to find this one was “wise faces”.
About that Auction I mentioned a couple of weeks ago – it is now well underway and runs until April 15th…..Here’s the link, for anyone who is curious! Some mysterious person has kindly BID on one of my pictures – so I’m definitely feeling pleased about that!! There are some lovely items, artworks and services on there, not to mention vacations and Nepali artifacts. I hope it raises some serious cash for the Orphanage!
I’m starting to feel the urge to get back to my explorations in skin tones….could be time to pick up where I left off a little over a month ago? …..Maybe….Or should I pay attention to that girl with a lantern who started to wander through my mind again, recently….?
Thanks for listening! I hope spring is coming to wherever you are reading this from! Everything looks so much more inspiring when bathed in warm sunlight – N’est pas?
