Creative Jumpstart is an online class during the month of January with 25+ different artists sharing a video designed to jumpstart creativity.
Here is my interpretation of Dina Wakely's lesson. I don't normally draw faces, but I followed her lesson anyway. Faces are not my thing. I think it's because when I was about 11 years old I was obsessed with drawing faces. I must have hit my lifetime quota of face drawing!! Anyway, I like how she turned out. I scribbled some song lyrics that I couldn't get out of my head around the hair. Then I glued her into my art journal.
Next I have a canvas based on Julie Balzer's lesson. I have lots of journals so I thought I would use an old 18" x 24" canvas that I started painting on and didn't like.
I went through the steps in Julie's video. Loved watching the paint colors mix and pool.
After I put the final black paint on, I wasn't crazy about it. So I went back and added a bit more color and gold paint. I'm going to look at it for a while and see what it need.
I know it needs a focal point. I need an art critique. Be honest. I promise that you won't hurt my feelings. Any suggestions?
