Face 5 by ToriBeveridge 2016

Face #5 – Straight Inside of My Soul

This face only emerged after I gessoed over the one I had started which wasn’t working the way I had thought it would. I’m so glad I covered it up and let this girl come out. Lessons learned…gesso is my friend and to be flexible because every painting has a soul waiting to get out, […]

How Life Book Influences My Art

OR.. Why I’m Behind In Life Book I’ve been playing catch up with Life Book 2015 watching some of the lessons for the first time.  What I find interesting is what happens when I do the lessons, which explains why I am (or think I am) so far behind. I’ve actually watched most of the […]
