Viikon aikana A weeks work

The first face is in aquarelle colors. Somehow I feel that I must do something else now. But faces I must do! 
I did a try with charcoal and liked it very much.
A female attempted me too, here I used dry pastels and felt very well.
Then I looked at a Frida portrait and made a dry pastel portrait of her too. It was very nice to do too.
This friday morning I felt that a dray pastel portrait must be done! And it became this and I like it for the moment.
But I have done something else also:
I like to practice drawing with different objects.

  1. Your portraits are beautiful, you have a lot of talent for faces. Perhaps you could make an art-journal page and link it to our Frida challenge on Art Journal Journey? Valerie

    1. Thank you Valerie-Jael for your kind words! Valerie, I could eventually make an art-journal page, but I must say, I don´t know what it is, shame to say, but so it is. Perhaps you can possibly tell me a little about that. I am curious. Sirkka

    2. Painting, words, perhaps a quote, perhaps the addition of things like flowers, birds, animals that Frida loved!

    3. Valerie, thank you for your advice. Now I know better, what "the journal page" means! I`ll be practising it in my futural "journal pages".

    1. Thank you alarmcat! I sometimes have a desire to make something else and then I can use pastels or acrylic. Pastels are fun to draw with:)

  4. Your portraits are always so beautifully painted and drawn. These are fantastic, especially the first and the last. I enjoyed seeing a different type of painting/drawing with the buildings. Very nice.
