Day Thirteen of Thirty Paintings in 30 Days

I think I spent more time trying to fix scans and photos of this than it actually took to paint.  I finally decided on this scan and it still doesn’t do it justice.  It’s much prettier up close and personal. Let Your Art Blossom by Tori Beveridge Mixed media on 4×6 140lb cold press watercolor […]

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 […]

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 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 […]
