My drawing and painting life
Day 13 was a Sunday. I didn’t want to work on a goddess painting. Lots of other inspiration. For instance, I started a new set of small faces (like the ones on day 5). I will finish these during the week and will show them later.
And I still had a couple of lessons of Carla Sonheims ‘Fingerpainting – fingerprinting’ class to do. So why not try making a face by using paint and my fingers only? I made this face.
It may not be ready. I may add a little paint later, but not now. I want it to dry first. But the process of fingerpainting is like this: it takes a lot of paint. If you keep adding paint on top, the layers are thick and need to dry long.
The picture is not the best – sorry – as the light is already fading. But I didn’t want to wait for it to dry and then scan it. I am preparing a scheduled post (it is September 13th now; it will be published on September 14th) – as I will be too busy tomorrow to write the post, make scans and add them during that day.
The third lesson of ‘Fingerpainting – fingerprinting‘ was about starting from random marks on the page, by the way. That kind of approach usually is fun – but you never know what you will make out of your marks beforehand. It could easily have been the case that other objects or creatures would show up in the marks. For this reason I started several pages. I took three journals / sketchbooks to paint in.
The first one led me to the face above (fortunately), the second gave me a dog and an elephant. Isn’t that fun?
