One sketch a day – girl in watercolors

Going back to faces today. And because I don’t feel like painting mixed media, I’ll stick with watercolors.

First thing first, a pencil sketch. You can use a watercolor, colored or graphite pencil. I’m using a purple watercolor pencil for this face, and if you are afraid of going too bold, you can switch to a soft gray or even a graphite pencil you can very well erase if you wish.

Inapoi la fete. Si pentru ca nu am chef de mixed media, astazi o sa folosesc doar acuarele.

Mai intai, o schita in creion. Puteti folosi un creion acuarela, unul colorat sau un creion grafit. Eu am folosit un creion acuarela purpuriu pentru a desena fata, dar daca va temeti ca e prea mult, puteti folosi un gri deschis sau un creion grafit pentru a putea sterge in voie daca e cazul.

Then started to add colors! First one, a shade of turquoise blue, then soft pink, yellow and so on, until I build this face. It’s worth mentioning that I’m working on a sketchbook, which means the paper is not that water-friendly, so I had to take care of the amount used. All in all, I like her!

Apoi am adaugat culoare! Mai intai, tonuri de turcuaz, apoi un roz pal, galben si asa mai departe, pana cand m-am trezit cu fata asta. Trebuie sa va spun ca am pictat intr-un caiet de schite, ceea ce inseamna ca hartia nu e tocmai prietenoasa cu apa, asa ca a trebuit sa am grija cu cantitatea folosita! Dar ce sa mai, imi place cum a iesit!

Voi ce-ati mai jurnalit azi?

Pe curand,


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!

I'm Cristina {creativeMag} and I welcome you to smile every single day of your life! (smile especially when you don't feel like ;) You already feel better, isn't it?)

I'm a mixed media Artist, love to create mixed media art journal pages, paint on canvas, I have a thing for handmade jewelry, I'm learning French {again}, diving into German, perfecting Spanish to the native level, and loving life! My native language is Romanian and English comes as a second skin!

Always wear your smile, no matter what!
