There were no birds in the dime-zone

One Hundred Faces
Face No 98
 I had to push myself to paint one more tiny dime size face. 
The last one.
But then I thought to myself, "there are no birds in the dime-zone." 
That's all it took. 
One Hundred Faces
Face No 99
It was like a warm-up.
I was then in a groove and so ready to paint No 99. 
I was full of inspiration to do it different.
I'm not sure you can tell, but I went about painting her with a little different technique. 
Well, I thought I it was different.
I built up thin watery layers of paint. 
And I used my finger a lot. 

Oh yes, I just want to tell you about that luscious greenish color you see in the top right and lower left area and even on the face.
I mixed Raw Umber and Primary Cyan.
I'll be doing that again.

  1. Oh, I do like that green. And she's a beauty! I hadn't realized the 100 faces group was open when I joined, as in any photos I posted there would be seen by my friends who aren't in the group. So I probably won't be posting my faces but I'd still like to stay and comment on everyone else's. It's good inspiration and I like to keep up with what everyone is working on. http://www.toadinaboat.com/

    1. Well, I simply can't do a self portrait as the No 100 face. Too big. Too old. Too fat. Too rink-a-lie. Let's just pretend that I'm one of those in the dime-zone.

    2. You could do your profile photo with the yellow glasses! It would be perfect, Sharon!
