Face number 7, Friz

I have been busy taking photos and stocking up my Etsy shop today which left me with very little time for the water colour face I had intended to paint for the 29 Face Challenge. I am extra challenging myself with the medium water colour because I have not much experience with this. It is not required in the Challenge so don't worry you can use any medium.

Little miss Friz.


So for now I am keeping it very simple. Just using two colours, orange and pink. Mixing those creates a flesh tone. So just three blops of cheap children's water colours from a local toy store and some scribble with Faber-Castell Pitt pen is all it took to create Little Friz.

Cheap children's paint are a great start for beginning water colour artists.
I will show you if you want? Keep the tips about watercolour coming in. I will put them all together for you at the end of the Challenge. Thanks to Catherine I have spend another fortune on supplies.

Different from your usual, and still pretty. Isn't it fun to try stuff? It's a bit scary, but always fun to try
