good monday, my lovelies!
this project was took way too much time. i don't usually like to linger too long on the same work but i ran into some snags along the way. but i persevered and got it done!
the starting point was a photo provided by my friend Kathy who came over one night so that we can art together. i painted the face first then moved on to create hair with lots of movement.
the photos she showed me was that of stained glass piece which had clear holes where the light weas shining through in a big way. i represented those by the white circles on my project and that's what i'm not too crazy about.
and all the tiny dots were only supposed to be highlights... it turned out to be a very long process LOL . but i'm happy with the face which was almost entirely painted with my fingers, except for the lashes and eyebrows.
if you're interested in the story and the process, here's my vlog:
