Curious faces

Curious Mind Art Journal Page by Cristina Parus @

This page already had a drawn face I didn’t like. It was made with neocolors II and so It was easy to add acrylics on top and start over. I ended with an orange background who was looking kinda happy and vivid. I proceeded on drawing the face on the middle, then the little curious one in the right.

Această pagină avea deja o față care nu-mi plăcea. A fost desenată cu creioanele neocolors II, astfel încât a fost ușor să adaug acrilic și să topesc culoarea pentru a incepe sa desenez iar ceva. Asa m-am ales cu un fundal portocaliu vesel și viu. Am desenat apoi o față în mijloc, apoi pe micuța curioasă din dreapta.


I colored these two faces with neocolors II, too, and then I mixed with acrylics in tan colors, and again added neocolors. Thought it would be nice to add some wings, as these are unreal, whimsical beings, so why not? 

Am colorat aceste două fețe tot cu neocolors II, le-am amestecat cu acrylice in culoarea pielii, iar am adăugat iar neocolors. M-am gândit că fetele ar arăta bine dacă ar avea aripi, pentru ca tot sunt ființe ireale, whimsical, așa că de ce nu?

In the end the background was a little bit too busy, so I added a little bit of white to temper the orange showing underneath.

La final, fundalul părea prea încărcat, așa că am mai adăugat puțin alb peste portocaliul un pic prea vibrant.

The journal used for this page is the Derwent Classic Book (A5) with acid free 165 gms/ 110lbs paper. Not sure if the left page will going to embrace this style, but I sure love the “panted” look on their faces.

Jurnalul folosit pentru această pagină este Derwent Classic Book (A5) cu hârtie fără acid de 165gms/ 110lbs. Nu știu dacă pagina din stânga va avea același stil, dar știu sigur că-mi place efectul “pictat” de pe fețele lor.


Let's say every day I'm giving-away the power of a smile and the power of positive affirmations. Let's stay focused on good, optimist things, rather what complain about the negative ones in our lives!

Always wear your smile, no matter what!
