Standing tall


Here's something for Paint Party Friday, I'm not particularly fast when painting, and I'll probably add some shadowing and highlights to this one. Maybe even a few more layers of colours.


I've experienced an unexpected feeling of freedom when using Willowing's method off processing every day life through journaling and colours. I used a magazine photo as a template for the face.


Dylusion stencil, Washi tape, different acrylic colours and pens, Liquitex gesso.

Thank you so much for visiting, it's much appreciated!

Happy Friday!!!

Love and hugs
Maarit

  2. You always knock me out with your artwork Maarit! This is a beautiful piece of art. Do you hang your artwork or sell it?? If you aren't selling it, I sure hope you are hanging it for everyone to see! Hugs, Brenda
