Ok, as a child I use to love to draw, but as with most things, as you get older the confidence and freedom you feel to do these things slowly disappears. But thanks to the very talented, and patient Kate Crane who taught a class at Art From The Heart at the weekend I actually managed to draw straight into my journal and ended up with an image which I was really pleased with.
So, Human she's not, but I have to say I'm quietly pleased with my tranquil alien!!
Realistic she's not but she is an encouraging place to start - and hopefully thanks to her I will have the nerve to start doing more drawing in my journal.
The background was done with golden paints and ranger paint dabbers as was most of the face. I added some random stamping to the background with distress ink pads and added a bit of shading to the edge of the page as well with a blending tool. Random quote came from an old book page. A lovely new stamp from Stampotique added the border and the final touch was a few drops of crystal stickles for the bling factor!!
Hope you all have a creative tranquil week. Take care
