The documented life – week 2 – Selfie

Sapatamana 2 din 2014 vine cu o noua provicare: sinele. Trebuie sa desenam, sa pictam sau sa atasam o fotografie cu noi. Eu am ales din nou sa desenez si sa pictez, si, desi am incercat mai demult sa fac un autoportret, nu mai am foaia pe care am desenat atunci. Asa ca m-am multumit sa desenez o fata, de data asta folosind direct Pitt pen de la Faber Castell.Week 2 -  selfie - documented life project - @ creativemag.ro by Cristina Parus

Fata este desenata direct in agenda, deci pe o hartie foarte subtire, dar pe care am lipit inainte cateva bucati dintr-un ziar vechi in limba engleza. Deasupra am folosit putin gesso (grund) pentru a uniformiza oarecum fundalul. Sub ochiul stang (cel din dreapta cum te uiti la desen), dar si dunga de langa nas sunt “urme” ale unei poze din ziar. Ulterior am desenat peste cu creioanele neocolor 2 in nuante de culoarea pielii si am mai domolit negrul tusului.

Asa arata initial, si va spun sincer ca mi-a placut foarte mult chiar si asa, fara culoare. Nu am folosit creionul pentru a o schita, am desenat direct cu Pitt artist pen. M-am intrebat daca sa-i adaug sau nu culoare, si am hotarat pana la urma ca vreau s-o colorez.

O am de ani bune de zile, uitata pe undeva printr-un sertar. Acum era momentul ideal sa o folosesc. 😉

Pe curand,
Cristina

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!

  1. Good for you, Cristina! I was able to do Week 1: Door … but got stumped later. I realize I don’t like most of the DLP challenges that’s why I couldn’t move on. I guess I will just have to work on my own prompts and themes. :o)

    1. The same thing happened to me, too, dear Connie! After week 3 I stopped and went on with my own creations! 🙂
      Thanks for stopping by!
