A while ago I purchased a stamp set with a wonderful butterfly. There was a quote with it, that immediately spoke to me for some reason. First of all, because of the promise, I gave to myself for the new year: be kind to yourself! This includes so much – body, heart, and soul! But it also means that I will have to make some changes. But changes can be good and liberating. So I will go for it in a gentle way.
I love to draw and paint faces, so I used my project for some exercise. Drawing a face for me is a long process. I always need some days to finish. The picture sits on my working desk and I come back several times a day and make some brush strokes or pencil marks here and there before I call it done.
In my video, you can watch me creating the background with the wonderful collage papers and stencils from Shawn petite and see how I draw a face from the start to the final touches.
I hope, you like my Butterfly girl! Thank you for your visit today!
