I havent touched my paints in forever but have been inspired by art journalists of late.  This is the first of many faces to practice before I get this right!  Its acrylic on an old webster dictionary page.



Number 2 done today....


I dont understand why these are sideways I turned them in my tablet to try and get them upright but still they load like this... sorry  Huh

Very nicely done!  I love painting on dictionary pages, too.  The juxtaposition of image and text makes me so happy for some reason.  Grin
