Dutch Design Leather, Est 2013

Another quick post with face 4 for the 29 Faces in 30 days challenge.

I sketched her with aquarel pencils on a collaged and gessoed background in my art journal. The background is mostly an article from a newspaper, about stress and what it does to you.

I tried to capture my feelings about going back to work.

Both in her face and by emphazising parts of the article.

Telling myself to just take a deep breath… and jump.

I rather like how she turned out and I definitely like using the inda ink to add details and write with. Still getting the feel though for the aquarel pencils and what you can do with them.

So that’s #4 done, just 25 left to go =). I wish you all a wonderful evening.

  1. She is wonderful. I particularly like her eyes, which are really expressive. Good luck with the return to work. I tutor at home (literature) now, but I still remember the apprehension I always felt on returning to work! Julie Ann xx
