More than one third of the way through this 100 Day Project of creating a face every single day. Here are my thoughts at the moment:
- I'm about to hit the road for three weeks and trying to decide which supplies to bring to create my daily faces. I wonder what creating on the road will be like?
- I'm enjoying experimenting with different mediums -- watercolor, oil pastel, markers, acrylic paint, and more!
- I can really see the difference in the faces when I use a reference image and when I don't. The ones with a reference image look more like an actual person to me rather than a collection of facial features.
- I'm thinking of teaching a mega in-person face class. This project is going to take me more than 3 months. But, I think you could do 100 faces in 3 or 4 days. You'd have to not think and just create. But, I think it could be super duper cool. It would mean making 33 faces a day! What a fun way to lose the fear of faces and push at the boundaries, right?
- I think that having video be part of each face puts the focus on the process rather than the final product. I like that a lot.
- I definitely prefer working on a surface with something to respond to. In some cases I create that surface as part of the face making process and in some cases I grab it out of my scrap bin or a magazine or catalog.
- I've done two faces with taped edges and I really like the way they look. That automatic mat makes the roughest painting look super fab!
And now, faces 28-34:
