29 Faces — Blog Challenge — No. 4 & Art It Friday – Show Your Face!

Alaya Art is sponsoring 29 Faces in September 2015.  Going with a more imaginary feel again today.  Also, Kim Dellow over on her blog has a fun thing going called Art It Friday – Show Your Face.  I discovered it while browsing some linked blog pages on Julie Fei-Fan Balzer’s regular Friday post Art Journal Everyday post which she usually posts regularly every Friday.  I found Paint Party Friday through Kim Dellow’s post.  This is a fun group, too!  There are some really talented artist doing all sorts of painty things over there.  Here are my entries.  The first is 29Faces-No. 4 and the second (from yesterday’s post) is for Paint Party Friday.

I was trying to do a more “imaginary” character to mimic Karen O’Brien’s style and this is what appeared.  Kind of a hybrid of real and surreal.  Couldn’t get the lips to do what I wanted them to do with the materials I was using so they are what they are.  Another experience lesson for me.  🙂

    • Thank you! You should go look up Karen O’Brian. She is so good with manipulating facial features and yet the expressions are still very deep, even with mostly a line sketch. And she is the sweetest lady in person as well. A great artist!

  1. My first thought when I saw your first face was that we must have read the same magazine. I recognized Karen O’Brien’s style. I love the colors you used in the top one.

    • Think we did, Neena! 🙂 I’m just glad that my imitations are good enough that you recognize it as Karen’s style. That really means a lot to me! Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment.

    • Thank you, Kim! No worries. I have had a lot going on (along with some illness 🙁 …) so that has put some of my posts behind and I haven’t really been able to sneak a peak at anyone else’s sites either. Thank you for taking the time to come by AND leave a sweet comment!

  2. I think these two may be my favorites so far. They have a fun quirky appeal for me. What a great exercise! Can’t wait to see what else you come up with.

    • Thanks, Kathy! (And I’m sorry my antibiotic brain called you “Linda G” the other day–I really haven’t been able to tell whether I’ve been coming or going lately. I sometimes amaze myself at how much excess capacity I have to screw things up sometimes! LOL)
