For our general weekly art lessons, I love to discover a new contemporary artist each month.
Studying their art, techniques, mediums and their personal artistic approaches inspires us to create too!
This week we looked at Jane Davenport and her “Beautiful Faces”
We watched her video tutorial and came away utterly inspired!
Jane uses a face stencil to create an outline and then created a double-spread art journal page using a picture collage that she incorporated into her lady’s hair. She uses her own range of art markers and paint pens. She demonstrates and explains several techniques which include pencils, paints, overlaying pencil, face proportions, making an eye “sparkle” and her journaling experiences. She made it seem to easy and creative!
Here are our “Beautiful Faces”
Despite living on an extremely remote farm, high up in the mountains, we are so grateful for our WiFi and our Internet connection to the world’s great artists and creative inspiration!
Why don’t you give this tutorial a try?
