48 weeks: week 7

Here is the week 7 spread from the 48 weeks class. I really enjoyed adding a face to this one, but it was a process! Originally it was more colorful, but I just didn't like it so I painted over it with gesso and started again : -)  I used a stabilo pencil and activated it with more gesso and it gave me great shading. That trick I learned from Dina Wakley and it's funny how many times I go back to it!  I decided to leave her black and white as a contrast to the colorful background.  I loved the modeling paste through a script stencil in the background and highlighted those areas with Inka Gold. Doesn't it look cool on her face? It's like her thoughts are written on her face.

She is an honest and open person....it's written all over her face. Love what you did with the touches of gold.
