Can you find what I missed?


Hehe, you should never make anything in a hurry, I should have written that he knew that he'd.....and I'm feeling lazy and won't start all over with the photo tent. 

I'm linking to these places:
Summer of Colour week 5: 2 green colours and 1 pink
Art It Friday: Show Your Face
Art Journal Every Day
Paint Party Friday


I had so much fun making this page, I got a free web lesson about drawing and was ready with mine a long way before the teacher, see I'm often swift. It was with a live modell so that felt a bit strange. But I might need to go back if I can learn something new.


Here are my colours, a stippling brush had to much yellow in it, so it changes the eyes perception of the pale ink colour. The old chipboard embellies matches much better. So I guess I'm cheating a bit too. I might have to wait for the sun set too :)

Materials used:
Derwent charcoal and watercolour pens, Distress inks, Studio Modern Red acrylic paint, Liquitex acrylic pens, Gesso and white paint. Stamploraitions stencil, old chipboards and sketch paper.

Thank you ever so much for visiting, it means the world for me.

Love and hugs
Maarit

  15. Wow Maarit, I'm so in awe of your wonderful inky skills. But now you draw as well?!! I so have to be more adventurous. Wanted to let you know Laura has been trying hard to work her way through her emails. Both her hubby and Grandma were in hospital this week, so she just doesn't seem to be getting a break. She will catch up soon I'm sure and be in touch when she has. So sorry you're having to wait. She's had such rotten luck lately! Hugs, Wends x

  18. Wow Maarit, your drawling always impresses me and this one is no different! I'm amazed at the detail on your man-I just have to keep scrolling back to look at it! I knew your mistake right away, but not because I'm good at spotting mistake, but because I kept second guessing my reading abilities. You see I have a habit of making things read what I want them to say or what they should say and thus am not a good proof reader. But this time, I kept saying why am I reading this wrong. Then realized why. lol Still, we all make mistakes, so not a big deal at all. I am so impressed by this work of art that the mistake doesn't even matter! The chipboard pieces go s well with this artwork. I love that background too, it just makes the man on the rock stand out even more! Hugs, Brenda

  22. Hi - just saw your link over at Brenda's (Friends crafting with Friends) and it was easy to zip over to see what you've been up to. This is awesome. I'd be terrified at trying to draw with a live model! (well, just at trying to draw freehand I guess!). Very impressive, and love the interpretive trees in your background. Using the leaf motif was inspired. Good luck to you in your classes, it's obvious you have a strong skill at this art. TFS & Have a great week! Hugs

  23. So impressed and from the looks of your card, nothing is missing to me. Love your incredible style!

  24. There is a soulful quality to this piece that I really, really like.
    As far as i'm concerned, it is a finished work, although it's your own, and so you might choose to alter it somewhat.
    Nice job!

  31. I can't tell you how many times I've written something on my artwork and then noticed a misspelled word...but that's what makes it art! Nothing is perfect. Your drawing is very good.
