Just a quickie - art journal progress...

Evenin' all!

A very quick post as I am on the way out (that sounds a bit drastic!) but I wanted to share the progress on the faces I was working on in my last WOYWW post (here).

It has been a bit of a steep learning curve... the most important thing I've learned is don't use Neocolor IIs on sketching paper - it can't cope with the water and goes wrinkly. That said, here is the first of my Whimsy Girls...

The face is coloured using Neocolor IIs in Salmon, Salmon Pink, Pink and Light Ochre (I quite like her with white hair - I may have to do a white haired lady in the future).

Having learned from my mistakes I've coloured the hair with Promarkers, believe it or not I have used Sandstone, Caramel, Cocoa and Shale to get the multi tones (apologies for slightly dodgy lighting)

All cut out and ready to go...

A sneak peek of the background..

That's all folks.
