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 […]

Day 6 30 Paintings in 30 Days – 4th Face

Imagine Possibility Mixed Media using watercolor, watercolor pencils, acrylic and ink on 4×6 140 lb cold press watercolor paper. (the photograph doesn’t do it justice.. it’s so much prettier with so many more layers of color and shading than you can see here) Thirty Paintings in 30 Days – Day 6

ATC/ACEO Girls

Today I’d love to show you two new little aceos/atcs  that I did for art swaps.  They’ve been sent and received by their new owners, so I’m not ruining any surprises. This first one, done with ink and colored pencils, was for an Alice in Wonderland theme.  There had to be one red heart in […]
