day 9


















Here is day 9's journal page. I decided to just paint a face. It just from my head, not really a self portrait since I do not have blue eyes, although i do have that color hair. I guess I could say its a self portrait and it really doesn't have to look like me at all. This time I tried doing the eyelids with paint instead of pen. I still need to work on colors and shading. The more I mix face paint the better I get at it so I know it will come over time. I may going to do another black gessoed page today. I painted the page last night. My friend Sophie says she uses colored pencil on the black and I want to try that. I will post it later tonight.
