I completed my first page for Lifebook today. This is the first face that I have painted. I have messed around with drawing a few faces before in my sketchbook, but this is my first completed and painted face. I would change a few things if I could go back and do them over, but overall I am happy with her. I based her on a combination of Saint Monica who is the patron saint of mothers and Hera the goddess of women, marriage, and childbirth. I wanted to get across the idea of me nurturing my family and helping them to grow.
I put the two scans together to show the whole spread.
I hope you enjoy seeing my progress as an artist as much as I enjoy learning and practicing art.
