Final Doodle....

So, the final Doodle lesson with Traci at 
Strathmore Workshops was all about painting
whimsical faces.  Not something I am very confident
about doing!!
So having taken a deep breath I took the plunge and here is
my piece..... her eye is very large and not at all how
I meant it to turn out!!

I'm really pleased with the overall look of the piece and the colour
scheme and the fact that her face shape is pretty good and her
hair &lips worked out quite well too.  

I've really enjoyed having a go at the workshop and will continue to
use the techniques Traci has shared with us.

Hi Mandi - just been catching up with your posts. Wow! What a surprise - hadn't realised you were painting and drawing and other stuff. Looks amazing - and it also looks as if you are really enjoying it.

PS. I've found that an ordinary Bic pen works for drawing, so long as you leave it to dry (overnight) before painting on top of it. Hope this helps.

Thanks for that Val.....I may pluck up the courage to have a go with a bic, we've got loads of them!!
