Art journal page

Hi there 

I love drawing faces and am sharing one of my latest in my  art journal. 
I have used many layers to create this piece, the face is layers of watercolour and coloured pencil as well as a bit of ink and permanent pen.

To achieve the texture down the side of the pages I have stamped into texture paste, after drying I have painted the background with a transparent wash of acrylic paint.

I have then made a raw umber paint glaze to bring out the detail in the texture then I have dry brushed gesso over the top of all the layers which has added a really effective hi-lite.

The stamped quote just seemed to fit in with the layout and is a darkroom door stamp.

I hope you like the end result.

Thanks for stopping by
