29 Faces day 16

Hello and Welcome

For my day 16 face I have something completely different from what I have done up to now.
I wanted to practice children for an idea I have for an exhibition I am involved with next month 
.

Acrylic paint

I find painting children quite difficult without them looking doll like so this challenge is a good opportunity for me to get some practice in :)

29 faces day 13

Hello and Welcome

After posting my face of lady GaGa yesterday, I decided to search more into makeup 'art' and found alot work in this area that I havent tapped into before. There was one artist who's work stood out. Her name is Alex Box

13 cm x 20 cm
Collage and acrylic

There was something which I found very inspirational that she says in her artists statement that I would like to share with you:

"I hope to show by example that I made loads of mistakes, had horrendous times of self doubt and still do, and always think I'm as good as my next piece of work. You have to take chances and risk failure or you may never discover new territory inside your own heart. Some of the best makeup I have done was because it was going wrong and I found a new, unexpected path that made it even better! It's the nature of the beast, creativity can be a ravenous animal and leave you in tatters, or it can exalt you to heights you never dreamt of".
"Please dare to dream, because with out dreams you're just sleeping"
                                                                                                                                  Alex Box

Today, while looking for inspiration I came across a picture of Lady GaGa who's makeup I thought looked rather like a mix between a clown and art

Cruella De Vill and Paint Party Friday

Hello and Welcome

To day I have brought my face number 11 of 29 for the 29 Faces challenge I am participating in.

I have been inspired by clowns over the last few days and in particular 'Lady Clowns'
My face for today is not a 'clown' so to speak, in act shes quite the opposite but I think the way she wears her make up is very clown like?
