Painting a Face Sketch

Actually, this is part of my first effort at movie making that I never showed. I am just now getting around to editing this video of me painting a face. I'm not really editing, just breaking it up into several parts. As you will see, I start the sketch with paint. I will have several segments to show. So, stay tuned.


Updating other news. My Internet service at home is finally up as of yesterday afternoon.

My Mother in law is settling in and having mostly good days and good nights although still confused a lot. All your words of encouragement, support and advise was so appreciated. Thank you. I was home until noon today and she is scrubbed and shined by me from top to toe.

My floors are blessed and my dinner is ready to put in the oven. I'm thinking I will maybe do a little painting tonight. I have an idea for inspiration but I will need to go get some fortune cookies first. Maybe I can do that on my way home.

Enough for now,
Expect another video shortly,
Sharon

  7. Thank you so much for the video. I sat in awe and enjoyed every second. I want to try this myself...soon! (I have two projects to finish first, but I am inspired.) You just make it look so easy! Might I ask what you are painting on and whether you are using oils or acrylics? Thank you so much!

  17. Your videos are fabulous, you make this technique look so easy and effortless. I can't wait for the next one. I've never done a face without drawing it first....I'm going to try and do your way.\ Only one thing(& I had the volume all the way up), I couldn't hear you very well and I like hearing what you have to say while you're painting. But maybe it's just my computer.
    Thank you for your willingness to share!!
    XOXO
