Wow, this is the first time I've posted in this section!  My partner, lindyv321, in the OWS 82 wanted a picture of her and her husband turned into day of the dead art.  Well, I decided to try my hand at it. 




I started with a photo of them that I turned black and white and used as guide to outline their faces.  Then I painted their faces with watercolors like normal onto watercolor paper, and then started adding the fun!  I can honestly say I've never done something like this before.  I'm never great at doing faces.  But, despite that, I think I managed.

 You did a great job and it looks like a lot of fun. I like the hearts in her eyes. Nice touch! Wink
