After watching Effy Wild’s Week 7 BOM video in Book of Days Premium for the second time this Saturday night, I put on some Shpongle and finally allowed myself to play with paint and some of the excellent texture pieces and stencil cut outs in Melody Hahn’s thoughtful happy mail (thank you again Melody).
I’ve never painted like this, where I just, paint. Well, I have, but I should say that I’ve never felt comfortable enough with my skill level to attempt to make a face of any kind under those, ‘let-it-all-hang-out’ conditions. You know, like being on auto-pilot when you’re driving? If you’re not skilled enough at driving, and you aren’t focusing specifically on your driving, you’ll end up in an accident. That’s how intuitive painting has always felt to me, like an accident waiting to happen.
So you can imagine how pleasantly surprised I was when I managed to navigate this one with some clarity and skill ;)
I almost forgot about 29 Faces! (I know already right?) So she’s also going to be my first face for that.
Thanks for stopping by <3
