Life Book 2017 - Week 3

This weeks lesson was by Misty Mawn. Misty paints wonderful portraits in acrylic paint. My preference is watercolour as I find acrylic paint a challenge. However I gave it a go using what I had - Distress Paints and some Crayons.

Misty inspired me to step out of my comfort zone and play with colour.

I couldn't help myself and ended up using my acrylic paint watered down to achieve a loose look. It was funny, I did it quite unconsciously.

I added Romans 12:2 to her blouse.

I wanted to try aqua and purple for skin tone. She reminds of the blue lady from Avatar!
Well it was fun letting loose with colour today. I really want to experiment with yellow in my next girls skin tone. We will see what happens.
