Faces by Reina Cottier

ALways wanted to paint faces… so, I decided, since it was a bit frightening,
to just go for it and painted one a day for 5 days. I went at it in a hurry,
because I didn’t want to think about it too much, didn’t want to
ponder each move, each brushstroke, I just wanted it to be a really free process.
I used inks, acrylics, and other mixed media. Loving the texture with tissue paper too.
Sometimes I blurred my eyes, or used my left hand,  it was really good to ‘let go’ and
not be preoccupied with what I think a face should look like, this is what was
holding me back before. These 3 are still in process, but will be available once finished.

    1. Hi Val 🙂 yes, it was an intense, process and even tho it was ‘fun’ doing it, the faces were revealing themselves as quite serious indeed LOL… Im sure as I get freer and more experienced at painting them, the expressions will reveal that .
