Paint Party Friday.....Week 28....

I've been busy adding color to my phone book page drawings. 


Playing with watercolor crayons and gesso and lots of other new toys :) 



...learning to add texture and design with unusual items from around the house...


I've never been good at faces so I've mostly avoided them...this class ifs helping me get over that even if they are not realistic faces...it's a start! 

The bottom one is still a work in progress and I'm still thinking it's going to be my favorite....if I don't screw it up along the way :-/

  14. I came back to your blog cos this idea of faces with non dominant hand intrigued me and I have done a couple. Do you do the whole thing with non dominant hand or just the first drawing?
    Wrote this comment on the citrasolv page but figure you will read it more quickly on the PPF page. I would LOVE a reply!
