Day 5 of 30 in 30 and My Third Face

For this painting I decided to try simply putting some watercolors on to the paper and see what I saw in the dried paint, similar to the journal pages I showed you here:  What The Paint Splatters Revealed
To start, I wet the paper and added blue and a peachy red that I mixed.  I let it dry, then came back to see what I could see.

Third Face 1
What do you see?  I couldn’t see anything at this point so I turned the paper vertically.
Third Face 2
There!  Can you see it?  It’s a face!

Third Face 3
I added paint to emphasize the facial features, hair and background.  Drying time again.
Third Face 4
Details added to eyes, nose, hair and background.
Jane by Tori Beveridge 2014
…and she’s finished.  She looks like a Jane, so that is what I named  her.
I really love these happy little surprises that come from playing with watercolor.

  1. Love this painting of Jane! Very creative and wonderful all rolled into one. I love it. (Our pug's name is "Jane"….Jane Austen Eyre to be exact :o) Have fun with the rest of the challenge. So glad Leslie is hosting it again. I'm having lots of fun with trying to figure out what to paint each day.
