Faces #6 and 7

 I was probably more pleased with this face than any other I have drawn so far.  I started using my Copic markers to get the face coloring and shadows.  I also quit using the Stabilo Alls pencil because it smears so easily.  I am happier with the results.
I love this one!  I used raw umber and white to get the coloring right.  She looks so pleasant.....
or maybe just pleased with herself.  I've got to get with it and do another face!  I'm loving this challenge.  ")

Faces 4 and 5

 I thought this face had a sweet look to it.  I did my background in green, so I had to gesso in the area for her face and neck.  (I had gessoed the whole page first.)  I really didn't want her face to be green.  ")  The hair leaves a lot to be desired, but that just means I get to practice, practice, practice.  LOL
Face #5 ended up rather a mess.  I had spritzed some color ink across the page.  Once I started trying to make shadows with a slightly wet paint brush and was pulling the lines in from my Stabilo Alls pen, it began to smear really badly.
Bless her little heart.......I'll have to try her again without spray inks.  ")

Masterboard Published

 This is Stampington's Take Ten Autumn 2014 issue.  I'm very excited to have my masterboard published in it!  I love going to the mail box and finding that I've received one of their magazine's with some of my art work in it.  This page shows the masterboard and one of the cards that I made with a panel cut from it.  
This page shows three more cards with panels cut from the masterboard.  I love making master- boards.  I never know what the finished work will look like when I start a piece.  Thank you Stampington for allowing me to be part of your publication!
