Paint Party Friday - Practically Perfect in Every Way!

Hi, at the moment am practicing faces and can tell you am total rubbish at it, but thought I'd better get cracking so when the 29 Faces start in February hopefully will have improved.  The litter bin is chock full of rubbish drawings........but am not giving up, even if I should do..............lol

The following is a page for my art journal...........Practically Perfect in Every Way.........well thats a joke isn't it.



Worked on an old sheet of Music - no not from Mary Poppins......Gesso, Napkin, Stencils, Modelling Paste and Acryillcs.  The influence for this was from the Suzi Blu Book of Mixed Media Girls.

Just need to cut off the Music Sheet from the edges and pop it in the Journal.  Wishing you a great weekend and thank you for popping in to see me.  Hugs Annette x

No way you should give up - I think this face is enchanting, and I love all the textures around her. Love the music paper underneath too... be a shame to lose it, I think!

Absolutely out of this world and Annette you should know me well enough by now to know I only speak the truth. She is so fanciful - so full of whimsy and romance. I love her!! Please keep on .. you put a big smile on my face this morning. I am making a copy so I can look at it to give me some get up and go!!!

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder Annette and I see real beauty, both in this gorgeous face and the fabulous colours and techniques that you used. I even love the music border too.

Neesie said...

Hi Netty...I think this may be my first visit to your place.
It's very reassuring for me to read that you are unsure but determined to continue with your projects. I thought it was only me that had those kind of thoughts. You're an inspiration and just look at your journal page.
It's gorgeous. I'm not sure I could draw a face never mind 29!
Good luck and I'll look forward to see how you get on.
Enjoy your weekend and thanks for visiting me earlier ;D

I love the music sheet because it gives her an entirely different ambiance. This is really good. Blessings, Janet PPF

Marji said...

She looks like Marie Antoinetty :) Love the dog in her hair. Very fun and a happy art filled weekend to you! M.x

Ayala Art said...

Netty! She is perfectly adorable! Nothing wrong with her, I can even imagine her in a printed card ♥

Carola Bartz said...

I'm not quite sure why you think you're rubbish at painting faces - your painting of this cute girl is beautiful. I like her a lot! The music sheet background is so nice as well - it's one of my favorite backgrounds.

Terry said...

This is one fabulous lady with a tint of blue hair! She is gorgeous Netty and I love the puppy! Happy weekend! Hugs!

Arnoldo L. Romero, MLA said...

You're being too critical of your beautiful work, Netty. I think she's precious, and the piece has a very charming feel to it too. Blessings!

Cozycomfycouch said...

Absolutely lovely!!! I'm glad you're not giving up! I too said that on my post about giving up. I look forward to faces also because I need so much practice with self portraits and my daughters portrait. I've been failing being able to capture her. lol I too said I'm not giving up! :D The fun part is the challenge. That's how we grow as artist. You are lovely and this lovely lady is sweet! love the textures and colors. Love her sweet expression. Truly wonderful!

peggy gatto said...

Lovely to savor!

Deepa Gopal Sunil said...

Lovely work...Beautiful :)

Jez said...

I don't know why you say you are not good at faces Netty, your girl is beautiful, and the most important thing is that nobody in the world could paint the face you have painted because it is not in their mind. I love the texture on the hair which is like waves and curls, and the humour of the little dog looking so surprised to be perched on top.
Looking forward to seeing more in the 29 Faces.

Lorraine said...

love the blues

paintingforjoy said...

Do not give up!!! You can do this! Your art journal page looks wonderful. The blue tones suit her well. She looks like a very proper lady. Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs xoxo Rhonda

Cindy D. said...

Such a pretty face! Reminds me of Marie Antoinette. And the blue hair against the blue background is very well done! (I prefer it without the text, but it's a lovely page!)

I have been practicing faces for a while now too and it's still a struggle, but hopefully we learn with each one. :)

Jennifer McLean said...

Thanks for the compliments on my site (JustAddWaterSilly.com), I'm in love with the colors you use in your art!

Hi Netty. I really don't think rubbish and your art go together in any way at all. Your art and especially this adorable face is a wonderful piece. It is bright and lovely. Silly girl.
