CJS17 with Dina Wakley

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.
