What's On Your Work Desk? Wednesday #297

Time for some WOYWW (what's on your work desk Wednesday) read all about it here on the Stamping Ground blog.  

I'm running late today with my post.  There's a mixture of last nights drawing items and new goodies bought today.  The face is for the 29 Faces Art Challenge painted with my water soluble wax crayons.  I'm trying to get ahead but it's not working - never mind it's not a race so no pressure.  I bought some new goodies for a steam punk style project that I want to make.  I've had an idea which I want to try but we'll see if what I see in my head transfers itself to card.

Thank you for visiting and leaving a comment.

29 Faces Art Challenge Day 6

Day 6 of the #29faces art challenge - Acrylics on acrylic paper, background colour from cleaning off surplus paint off my brayer- need to go back and re-do the hair and add some texture it looks too flat.

What's On Your Work Desk? Wednesday 296

It's a sunny Wednesday and time for WOYWW.  Pop over to Julia's blog the Stamping Ground to find out more and to join in.

Normally I only show you the bit of desk where I have my work.  However, today I am going to show you the whole of the desk.  Are you ready? Here we go .........as you can see it's full of stuff most of which gets used on a regular basis so it's silly having to put things away and get them out again.  The acrylic paints have their own place to live but I've been using them this week for the 29 faces art challenge  I'd started working on today's face last night but I prefer to paint in day light so left it looking a bit forlorn.  On the back wall is where I put up some of the art I have traded or collaborated in.  Those are inches on the black board and propped up against it are 2 canvas boards with some Moos/moo houses.  The green box contains papers and ATC blanks ready to be worked on and a few other nick naks on top that lives my pencil case  with my markers and other pencily stuff.  

Thanks for popping by and for leaving your comments.  I'm off to the gym shortly and then have a reflexology booked so I'll be visiting all the other blogs later to have a nosey at what's on everyone's desk  

Have a great day.

Oh and just a little plug for my earlier post where if you leave a comment you can be in with a chance to win one of my Swarovski heart necklaces and handmade embossed heart card.  Click here.


29 Faces Art Challenge Day 3

Day 3 of the #29faces art challenge.  I started painting this one with Derwent's graphic tint pencils but they didn't like the gesso and left grainy bits which made the whole thing look 'dirty' so I went over some of it with acrylic paint.

Join in with the challenge on the 29 faces art challenge blog.

Thank you to everyone for visiting and leaving a comment.


29 Faces Art Challenge Day 2

Day 2 of the #29faces art challenge.  

Not too sure about this one. It started off as a male face but seems to have gone off a bit. I think its the chin it became too rounded as I painted. Didn't bother with the hair too much as I wanted to concentrate on the shading of the face.  I have another 26 days to improve.  

Join in or check out the other artists who are participating in the challenge over at 29 Faces Challenge blog

 See ya tomorrow


29 Faces Art Challenge Feb 2015

Okay lovelies it's that time of year when I try to draw or paint a face each day for the #29Faces art challenge.  Want to know more about this challenge then pop on over to Ayala Arts blog 29 Faces Art Challenge to learn more and to see all the other artists who are joining in from all over the globe.

Here is my first face.  This was originally a postcard which I had painted on but didn't like so I covered it with black and white gesso and some texture paste.  The face is painted with gouache in a loose style.  

 If you leave a comment and are visiting via the link from the challenge linky then please can I ask that you add which number you are on the list - makes it much easier to find you and able me to visit your blog in return. 

Thanks for popping by to visit and I look forward to seeing everyone faces.
