I love Dina Wakley’s work, and also her paints – they are a nice consistency and great colours, so I was excited about today’s inspiration. The project was quite different to what I’d normally do, which is the whole point of Creative Jumpstart. I painted a journal page as the background, then a loose page of marks for using as contrast, then tackled the face on a second loose sheet of paper. I’m not good with faces, so printed one of the internet to use as a guide. Once it was all dry, I tore the face in half and combined with pieces of the mark making paper. I’m pleased with the final result, and will probably try this approach again.
this looks really interesting Cath and I do like it it as well. its quite different.
