Another Page in My Art Journal....

Hi everyone. Bet you wonder why you haven't seen me around Blogland today. HB is doing some work on his studio so things are sort of topsy-turvy around here. But don't worry, I'll be around to visit ASAP. I can't stay away too long.

Yesterday I started another girl in my new art journal. She took me longer than I expected....I just finished her minutes ago. I think she's rather plain compared to the one I did a few days ago but here she is....



I wanted to try darker hair so I could use the white Sharpie poster paint pen. It's ok but I still like the other one better. Here they are side by side in the journal....



Sorry, the picture is a little blurry. I must have moved but you can still see the comparison.



The scan cut off most of her shirt in the pic above. I like doing drawings on the hair because I have such a difficult time painting hair. This way I don't have to worry about it!

I hope you had some fun today.

  18. Hi Janet... I really love this one...love the patterned hair on both girls...but I'm a big fan of black and white. Experimenting is always good. I had some fun today...I went in for my root canal today(which will be yesterday now as I write this).
    Cheers,
    Mary
