Two Girls by Tori Beveridge Featured

Two Girls

Two Girls Two Girls is the result of this week’s Life Book 2016 lesson with Jane Davenport and Tamara Laporte.  It really spoke to me because I am so comfortable with the mix or ‘jam’ as they called it of their two styles.  We were asked to use limited supplies of our choice.  I chose pencil, […]

Paintings 15 and 16

Hi everyone! Here are are my fifteenth and sixteenth paintings for the month.  Both were done with water colors, acrylic and ink.  The first one I also wrote a few notes to myself on the background before I started in graphite before I started, which peek through in spots.

After a very intensive stretch of working for Sympatico Studio (which I really did […]

Day 19 Another Face

I just finished this painting.  It’s still wet.  It will look much different in the morning when it’s dry. It’s actually the second painting I did today.  The first was a watercolor and it was really really really bad.  I debated about posting it, but I decided that it really was too horrible to post. […]

Day Twelve of Thirty and a Seventh Face

I kept it simple today, with this postcard sized mixed media, watercolor, acrylic and ink portrait. Wonder by Tori Beveridge I stamped over the first coat, then used a brayer to cover the whole thing with white acrylic, then I went back in and repainted.  The word, wonder, was then added and I detailed with […]
