10/52 Portraits – Interests

It’s the 10th week of my #52portraitsclass. What are my areas of interest?

Now that I am retired I am able to make art every day… I relegated visual creativity to an “interest” when I had my administrative analyst job, supporting my family. Now I am art journaling to explore where my artistic drive and abilities will take me. I am DOING my interest. I thought it would be fun to art journal my face for this portrait.

Xoxo my friends! (I’m practicing posting from my phone so no fancy ending this time! lol)

      Good question!!!! I didn’t keep track. I was an actress in my youth so applying complex make-up is a no brainer for me. I was surprised at how much easier it is to paint with Tempura paints than make-up which sped up the process. I just pulled bits of stuff from my art journal ephemera and stuck them on with the paint. I realized I didn’t have to detail both sides of my face because I’d only focus on one to be able to read it in the photo. That shortened the process as well. So my guess is maybe an hour? Much less time than an actual art journal page! lol Thank you Soooo much for commenting and enjoying all the stuff I do.
