Art Every Day Month, day 29

reworkedportrait - 1

The end of the month is sneaking up on us, I fear. Today I took an unsuccessful piece from earlier in the month and worked a portrait on top of it. I enjoyed the process but I think I took it a little too far – it was more interesting when more of the earlier image showed through. Plus I was a little too aggressive with my mark-making, shredding the paper in places (like around her cheek). We’ll just call it another learning experience, shall we? I could have avoided the tears if I had just put it aside and worked on something else in between some of the wet layers. Always good to have several pieces going at once, isn’t it?

    Hi Julie — I agree with you — I always find that working on several different pieces takes away some of my left-brain drive to “fix” a piece or get it completed. I like the feel of this portrait — it’s got some real grit and a fierceness to it!
