Hope your weekend is going well.
We had strange weather here today, warm and humid, very unusual for November!
Today Susi and I are beginning a new, private challenge - 99 faces.
Susi finished her 49th face for the other challenge yesterday, so now we are starting again. If you think we are a bit crazy - well, could be, but it's fun!
For my first 'new' face I have made a hybrid/mixed media page in A3. The background is a collage which I scanned. The face and the profile are my drawings, the nude is a water-colour sketch I made in the 90s, and the starling is one of my balcony visitors. The nude is sitting on one of the columns from the basilica. The script in the background is one of my old family documents. The clock-hands, butterfly, an overlay and the 5 were added digitally, and were freebies. I printed it out, and fitted it into my painted page, for which I used titan buff, green-gold and ocker, all from Decoart. I used various stencils to pull it all together. The quote on the page, 'To everything there is a season.....' is from Ecclesiastes 3:1
It is also meant for Art Journal Journey, inspired by autumn colours, and
Kim's Show your face
The photos today were all taken on the road where I live. I just looked for rusty bits and bobs, and found them:
And the rusty leaves fit to the rusty parts:
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
