The Watcher and the Doodle Girl...

Hey friends!  How is your 2015 going so far?  Mine is going great!  I want to thank you so much for all of your comments on my recent posts!  I really appreciate hearing from you!

I just realized I never shared these two portraits from the Radiant Faces Workshop - (which I am still LOVING by the way)...

This is "The Watcher," which was taught by Kylie Fowler.

She is the one who lovingly watches over me - kinda like a guardian angel...
 (photograph, acrylic paint, gesso and marker)

She started as a photograph of me, and morphed into someone completely different when I started to add paint over the top.  It's the first time I've done a paint-over collage technique and liked the results!


And this one is called "The Doodle Girl," taught by the fabulous Joanne Sharpe.

She represents my 70's soul...
(Copic marker and pitt pen)

I still have one or two portraits to go in this class.  If you are interested in learning various styles of portrait-creating, I highly recommend Radiant Faces.  The diversity of each lesson has been amazing! 

Thanks so much for visiting today!  I appreciate you!

These are wonderful and I think Effy is currently offering the course at 1/2 off with a chance to win a big prize if you complete 18 faces by October. I need to get going on this class. I just finished downloading each of the lessons. I really love your face from Joanne's lesson.

I really love both of the faces... it's a long time ago I did a pain-over-portrait... I might do one in my new Chronicles for the first week? Definitely am going to check out the link to the workshop... sounds like fun!
