Paint Party Friday, and LifeBook!





So, If you're having fun with LifeBook, you may see I just made up my own assignment.  I really wasn't into the lesson, and although I do want to learn from everyone and learn all styles to figure out my own, it just wasn't a priority right now.  I had sketched this face a while back from Tam's faces, and I thought she was perfect to play in with the second lesson of the yin and yang of sorts.  I started with a very clean sketch, and moved to painting my way, with mostly my fingers.  Very loose. Very quick, and very messy.   She does represent me in so many ways, and she represents many sides of myself.

  19. When I saw her expression I wondered how much of you would be in her. Thanks for adding that note to the portrait, it adds a lot of meaning to it.
    I love her layers of colour and I´m looking forward to seeing more of your work.

  27. Speaking of great color! I can't believe that you did this with your fingers! Really wonderful!

  28. Your girl's face is really really cool. Your use of color is amazing. I love how you added the shading but used totally non-traditional colors for it. It makes a really cool effect. I love what you are doing!

  29. I am stressing over the lifebook thing because although I like the lessons and seeing how it is all done, I just can't bring myself to make some of the pages... they feel a bit limited to me, so I am going to take a leaf out of your book and take the ideas and play in my own way... why did I not think of that!!! You are a genius...xx

  30. Absolutely GORGEOUS!!! Gorgeous color, freedom and energy! Really, really beautiful, xoxoxo

  31. Really love it! Looks fantastic. I think doing things your own way is your style and shows the best of you. Sometimes I think I am working too hard to make things because I'm trying to please others, instead of just doing what I love and not thinking of it in terms of posting it for the world to see. Do you every feel that way?
    Anyway, love this and I agree, it looks like you. I love the freeness of it. :)
    Happy doodles to you!

  33. It's nice to learn from others, but then relaxing and doing it your own way...nothing beats that. That freedom really shows in this piece.
