A Loose Journal Page

This is a loose art journal page, because I wanted to do something a little larger than my journal allows.  I’ve been doing quite a few small pieces lately and I wanted to stretch.  I reached for a 9 x12 piece of mixed media paper. I didn’t know what I was going to do, except […]

Day 30 The 23rd Face

This is my twenty third and also my final face for 29 Faces in September.  I didn’t reach twenty nine, but I believe twenty three is a very respectable number of portraits for the month of September.  It’s also my thirtieth painting. I repainted a half face that I started the other day.  I wasn’t […]

Day 29 and Three Faces

As promised yesterday, I’m sharing the other three half faces.  I finished painting them this morning.  That makes these, face numbers 20, 21 and 22.  Journey Half Face by Tori Beveridge Trust Half Face by Tori Beveridge Transition Half Face by Tori Beveridge Thirty Paintings in 30 Days – Day 29

Day 28 Face 19

I am taking part in a really cool art trade.  I am part of a group of four people.  Each of us creates two left sides of a face and two right sides of a face, and then mails three away.  Everyone will eventually end up with two rights and two lefts again and it […]

Day 27 and Two Faces

Day twenty seven is almost at an end.  It was a busy day but also very fun, because this weekend is Ellen Million Graphics Sketch Fest.  As always, there were so many prompts to create from, it almost makes it hard to decide, but two stood out for me, Sugar Skull Fairy (prompt from Tara […]

Day 25 and Fifteenth Face

September is almost over.  Halloween will be here before we know it.  I’m getting in the spirit early with this Little Witch. Little Witch by Tori Beveridge Thirty Paintings in 30 Days – Day 25

Day 24 and a Fourteenth Face

My painting today is another atc/aceo and was done with watercolor, white acrylic and black ink. Thoughts by Tori Beveridge Thirty Paintings in 30 Days – Day 24

Day 20 – Portrait of Anne

Today’s painting started as another exercise in putting splotches of watercolor on the paper, then seeing what emerged once it dried. I started with the purple and the peach and the blue came after I saw her face emerge, to give her a hat and a dress.  Details such as eyes, mouth and nostrils were […]

Day 18 and My Eleventh Face

Today’s painting was a bit rushed but I finished it!  Phew!  It’s an aceo/atc sized mixed media piece, using tissue paper, gesso, acrylics, Faber Castell gel sticks, the stickered saying and Pitt artist pens. Be Brave by Tori Beveridge  Thirty Paintings in 30 Days – Day 18

Day 17 and A Face

I set aside the watercolors today and reached for my acrylic paint. I was in a floral kind of mood, but I also knew that I am waaayyy behind in my 29 Faces in September. What to do? How about a face peeking out from behind the flowers?  She’s partially hidden, but I think she […]

Day Fifteen – Another ‘Drippy’ Watercolor Face

Yes, another watercolor face today.  I had to do one more, because yesterday’s was so enjoyable for me to paint.  I was definitely much more relaxed while painting this one. She marks the half way point in Thirty Paintings in 30 Days and my ninth face for 29 Faces in September 2014. Another Face by […]

Day 10 – Thirty Paintings in 30 Days and Face 5

So far, so good!  I’m ten for ten! I am, however, a little behind in my 29 Faces, so today’s painting, I knew had to be a face. I used another advertising magnet as my canvas.  As before, I applied a layer of gesso first and then got out my acrylics and painted this cute […]
