challenged myself this week to draw a face like Dina Wakley, freehand and in black paint. i surprised myself actually! i like her a lot. the background started as my paper covering from my work table, so the color you see inside her face was there first as the mess i had left behind from projects before. this is a new habit of mine to use my table paper until it is saturated with color and then adhere it in my collage journal.
the quote is hard to read but says, "allow yourself to be a beginner" i have to remind myself that learning and taking risks is a huge part of the creative process. this page is a great example of the surprising results!
