Today I am linking with Sunday Sketches (face drawings) and with 30 Paintings in 30 Days with the same faces painted.
This morning it was pouring with rain so I thought I would do a bit of blog hopping, one site I was visiting had a link to U tube and the next thing I knew I was listening to ‘Girls just want to have fun’ by Cyndi Lauper. The video had her prancing about with total abandonment. I just loved her colours and attitude so I got one of my gessoed boards and gave myself the task of drawing her within the time of the video, I think about 4 minutes.
I really liked doing this so looked on the side bar and found Sinead O’Connor’s Nothing Compares to You. This was easier as the video mainly just showed her head.
Next I glanced down and saw Bryan Adams ‘Everything I do I do just for you’. I just love his gravelly voice!
I didn’t want to make the paintings portraits of these people they were just a base to work on.
I gave myself 10 minutes to work on each. They are in acrylic on gessoed mount card (7 x 9 inches). So here are Paintings 4 and 5. I will do Bryan Adams Face for Painting 6 tomorrow. It was great to listen to some music I hadn’t heard for years.
This exercise has given me the idea of doing something like this for the 29 Faces in February challenge.
Have a great day everyone.
