27 and 28 running late!

Photos for today's faces!
I do not practice enough my photography, which is a funny thing in this time and age when everybody and at all times people are over-documenting their photo-lives with selfies hahaha :oP

Well, anyway, we went out of town and I came across a shop with statues. So beautiful! I wish I had the space for one, and the way to bring it home.... they were so heavy!

This face is No 27:


 And face No. 28 is the image altered digitally:

Face 26 of 29, a rock!




I painted a tiny rock, and I had a blast!
After finding the smoothest and the right color, got my pencil and made a simple sketch, then with one of my tiniest brushes I added flesh tones, hair, and a flower.

Very simple, but I think it turned out cute ♥
There is a quarter next to it for size comparison, but if you are not familiar with it, it is smaller than 1 inch (less than 3 cms.)

Face 25 is abstract.





I am enjoying more and more doing abstracts.
It's been difficult because I love to go into details so much, and I love my tiny paint brushes, but there is freedom in a larger brush and simpler paint strokes.

In this case the flash for the photo changed one of the eyes, but I liked the effect so I left it, didn't correct it so it has an extra effect not planned. :o)

In this 29 faces challenge we are working on techniques and different ways from our usual as an exercise for the mind and hopefully the growth of our art.

No. 23, charcoal sketch



I usually use charcoal in a different manner, but in this sketch I just made the face and stopped right there. Not even shadowing.

As we are coming to the end of the challenge, I'd like to  know if you have learned something new about yourself, your likes and dislikes. Specially those that are new to the 29 faces.

No. 20 and 21 faces in my art journal

I love leaving half started pages, then come back days or weeks later and go from there, with different colors and coming from a different idea.
It is very refreshing!
These are my 20 and 21 ... wow, we are getting close to the end!

No. 18, 19 WIP

We went to a concert at the fair last night.... it was awesome! Kansas played, and I have to say they are superb. Period.
But that made me totally forget to post :oP

So here we go, 18 and 19 out of 29 faces.

An ACEO and a journal page. I have been working with rough texture, which is rare for me to do so. Usually I like softer surfaces but this is great fun!

I am leaving this for today as it is, but will finish it tonight.

I need to work on my little shop and Halloween seems to be as good time as any for it :oD

The journal page is showing some steps, most likely I will make it in to a super short slide show ...
Thanks for visiting! And so happy to be featured in this weeks Paint Party Friday!
Sharing with AJJ too

Here is this little ghost, with her pumpkin bag ... which has another face! :oD

No. 13 and 14 of 29 faces. Photos

This past weekend we went antiquing to N California and although I didn't find something to buy, I took a few pictures. We were hoping for cooler weather up there, but no luck. It was still in the 100s. The sad part was looking at the water reservoirs, so low!

Well, back to the challenge, for today I have photos of faces digitally manipulated. Something very simple because the faces were already fun to see as they were:

   


One is a Dia de los Muertos  window display, and the other a beautiful carving in an antique armoire.

It is acrylics on a 6x4 card.

9.11

We will always remember where we were, what we were doing on this date so tragic.
The world was never the same, or the way we live after.
