I had some time this weekend to actually take an on-line art class - something I have been wanting to do for a long time. I took Deb Weiers' Wonky Faces class. I loved it! These are my drawings after class 1 and 2 - I haven't finished my class 3 drawing - I went down a crazy train with it and need to figure how how to fix it.
I love how she distorts faces and puts so much expression in them. This was a really fun adventure.
I drew the man first using a Stabilo pencil activated with water. When I was done, I realized he reminded me of a very evil man I know so I added in some words that fit him and the words poison mind on his face. I also wrote in a Theodore Roosevelt quote.
The girl reminded me of a girl in a book I just finished. She had been abused badly, but held on to God and hope and was able to have a decent life. I added the word hope to her face and the words, "We are all a bit bruised inside" to the side. I used the Stabilo pencil on her too but also watercolors, torn paper, and gesso.
Linking my journal pages to **Art*Journal*Journey* where the theme is "Inspired by" - I was inspired by Deb Weiers.
