A ShutterBug Explores ~ Face Off Friday and Art for Fun


'Rice is great if you're really hungry 

and want to eat 2,000 of something.'~ 

~ Mitch Hedberg

Oil pastel that hangs in my kitchen on Cape Ann MA

~ there are red heads in my family so this was my motivation ~ It was hard to photograph because it hangs so high on the wall and I am a short person ~ lol
Below is another rendition I did recently in watercolor.

  • An exploratory water color of the first face above 
    this one is one done quickly to see if I could do so
    in watercolor ~
    The oil pastels worked better to manipulate ~
     not so with this watercolor~ you can see lots of mistakes but it was fun ~  

    We are sharing with:
