Life Book 2014 - Spray Ink Love
Six weeks of 2014 have already flown by! I remember thinking how awesome it was that I had 6 whole weeks to do nothing but paint and play and now I have two more weeks and I am back to school!
This week's lesson was with Tamara LaPorte where she showed us how to do a side profile potrait and taught us some new techniques with ink sprays. My ink play didn't turn out how I wanted it to, but I am happy with the effect that I got.
I loved the portrait style. I was surprised at how quickly I was able to put my brush down and feel like she was finished. Although Tamara spent a lot more time to achieve a stronger sense of shadow and highlights, I was content with the very minimal, soft effect that I created after very few brush strokes. I also love how the speckles of the ink spray have come through to look like freckles!
In her hair is a celebration of our positive qualities. Still not thrilled about my handwriting but happier with this attempt at lettering than the last page.
