Looking to the future (mixed media monday leftovers)


Another page from my sketchbook. I have used a variety of leftover paints on this page with inks and pastels to draw the face. I am quite pleased with all the texture from the different layers of paint and ink.

There's some great depth in this from all those layers and gorgeous colours. This exercise was great in forcing us to use up all those little bits left over!

I love this painting. She looks so deep in thought about the future, very contemplative. You've really captured her emotions perfectly.
