Pass The Face & WOYWW

Hi everyone. Ooh look - two weeks in a row. Even with slower than dial-up broadband I really enjoyed getting round a few desks with What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday last week. Thank you to all those who visited mine. 

I'm showing some art at the end of this post but will post my desk first in case you're in a hurry.

This week we're at my little PC desk. While my internet was not letting me load pictures very quickly and YouTube was totally banished - I decided to catch up on those classes I'd paid for and never completed. So here  I'm working on a face with the Suzi Blu class The Goddess & The Poet. Paid for at the end of 2010/beginning of 2011 or there abouts! I'm on a ban from buying any more classes till I finish these I've paid for... (Entering to win them is a different matter of course.)
Whoopidooings: What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday
We have the obligatory (empty) mug of tea, my sketchbook and headphones because the boy trashed my speakers. If I want a bit of peace and quite I sometimes put these on and pretend I'm listening to stuff - just to block out the noise from the rest of the house and so people will be put off bothering me. Ssssh. Don't tell ;)

You might also be able to see some Pan Pastels from a lovely friend, a bit of  radiator heater for some reason (probably rescued from the boy) Oh, and some bits I forgot to move that are meant for my Secret Santa - so don't scrutinise to closely.

Last week on my desk I was working on some faces in collaboration with three other people. A few people said they would like to see the finished pieces. I got mine home yesterday so thought I would share in this post rather than direct people off to a separate one.

On the 29 Faces group on Facebook, a few groups were set up to work on a collaboration project. Our Europe group had four people in it. Myself, Gina, Anita and Mariane. We each started a face and then it was sent on around the group for each participant to add to.

This is my start. It's watercolour on watercolour paper. The eye is acrylic paint, Sharpie pen and fineliner. This was posted on to Mariane in Denmark.

I then received Gina's start (the blue spotted one) and Anita's. I forgot to take a 'before' picture but here I've added the skin colour and face shape to Anita's, fleshed out the nose and did the second eye with some decidedly  'Alice' make-up. I've used a combination of Lyra Aquacolour crayons, Neocolour II crayons and a dab of acrylic for the highlights in the eye. Anita had done the stylised eye and the mouth.

For Anita's face (The one with pink flowers)  I expanded on the eye and coloured it, did the mouth and started adding some shape to the nose. Again I used the Neocolour II's (the pinks in the mouth and around the eye) and Lyra Aquacolour crayons. Oh wow I'm in love with those Neocolours - I need to get me some more! I only have 3 pinks. These faces have now been sent on to Mariane. 

Yesterday, my completed face came home along with Mariane's which I get to finish off. Oh, how I love what the girls did with my face.

My Fiery Vixen as Gina calls her - isn't she fab?

So that's the faces, I'll update with what I do to finish off Mariane's blue and green face in a later post.  Thanks for stopping by today :)

  5. Very interesting collaboration theme, and good to have just a small circle so that you're not waiting too long for things to come back. The results are all amazing, so unusual and gorgeously coloured. Good enough to frame.

  13. Hey Carmen, what a fab and fun blog you have! After your browsing mine (thanks!), I've put off washing up the breakfast things to check out what you do. A great distraction - I love your blog! I love this faces project. Wonderful idea to collaborate with others via f/b. You are very inspirational.

  14. That's a fascinating progression of faces. It's a bit like following one of those facial reconstructions from "Meet the Ancestors". I like your idea of putting on the headphones to block out the noise. I can remember my Mum telling me that when our house got really loud she would go into the kitchen, close the door and then stand up right against it so noone could get in. I didn't really understand until I grew up and felt the need to do it myself.

  17. That is the coolest face your Fiery Vixen...especially how it started out with just that one beautiful eye!I I used to do round robins when I quilted but this stuff is way cooler (whoops, I used that word already, oh well). Now hurry up, let's see what you did with Marianne's face.
