29 Faces in May; Face 6

Face 6 was painted in water-color over gessoed paper. I am pleased with the outcome considering how much of an issue I had with the water-color paint not wanting to adhere to the surface at first. The brush strokes are obvious but, it gives the face character and texture. I mixed white, orange and pink to get the skin tone. Her right eyebrow is cocked upward…I did not do that¬†deliberately, but I didn’t want to fix it either, because I liked how she looks like she is questioning another person’s logic (like Mr. Spock). (Warm laughter) I guess I could have given her pointed ears.
