Face 9 and Mix it Monthly

Hi, Happy Sunday.............am trying something a little different, this time using paint to outline my face and adding the details last...........never tried it this way round before and have to say its very freeing.



I collect Owls and this is a painting of my latest purchase.  (Cut out and placed on a digital background)


My contribution to Mix It Monthly - Pets

Looking forward to seeing everyones faces today, as they are always wonderful and very inspiring.
Take care of yourselves and have a goodly day, hugs Annette x

Love this face - I think you can tell that this was a more enjoyable process for you - and she's beautiful! The green tint has a touch of Modigliani about it to me!

Love the owl too - what is it about owls?!
Have a lovely Sunday!

Wow Netty! These are both just gorgeous and love the tinting on the face - makes her look a bit like a dryad to me.
Hugs, Fliss xx

Beautiful lady - beautifully painted. I wonder if your method this time works on the same principle as Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. Doing this a new way left you open to see something new.
My mother-in-law collected owls. They are such elusive creatures. I hear them in our woods but seldom see them. Your owl is beautiful. You have been busy!!!

Your face is great. Sometimes I do that too but I don't get the features placed as well as you did! Your owl is lovely. Good acquisition to your collection.

That blue does make the girl look other worldly and the owl is adorable. Great art!
