I got my bit of inspiration for todays face from a friend of mine who is also doing the 29 face challenge. Swirlygirl painted a lovely Matisse lady last week and as I love Matisse I thought I would have a go.
As you can see I gave her a new hairstyle! Although I love Matisse his strong dark lines are not something I normally use, during the challenge I am trying to vary my usual approaches to representing faces and perhaps learn something new along the way!
For the mirror I added a bit of collaged kitchen foil. The original piece is called the Inattentive reader, which I think is a fabulous title for a painting, I wonder what's on her mind?
