More Imaginary people – drawing on book pages


“He Was His Mother’s Favorite”

Oil pastel, watercolor, graphite, gouache on muslin 5 x 6 inches

I am so loving doing these little paintings using Lynne’s technique!  I feel like its magic the way a face sort of appears on the page, and I love doing the eyes.  This is a great learning experience for larger paintings too.  I feel like each one I do I learn something new about painting the human face – and the expressions just amaze me since I don’t know beforehand what they are going to say!
