Paint Party Friday...and 29 Faces!





Remember the little painting I did last week? Well, this is painting #2 from the workshop I am taking on TheTroddenPath. This painting measures 6x24 inches on wood and is collage, acrylics and pencil. The collage image I used for the upper half of the women is from Sittin'PrettyLadies by HiddenVintageStudios. She looks so different in the painting after all the paint and pencil. I really enjoyed doing this one and am starting my third...these ladies are very addictive!

Happy PPF everyone!

p.s. I'm also linking to 29Faces for February...wish me luck!

This is great, Kim! I thought I recognized Jane's influence as I have taken a class with her as well in the past. In fact, just today I thought I should watch the videos again as a refresher. Seeing your painting just convinced me that I should really do that! Happy PPF, Silke
