Painting Faeries

There are always things that we paint well and things that we struggle with and Faeries seem to be my struggle.  I have been on the search for a design that is pleasing to me that I can paint well on the cheek and finally found something that works for me.  Sometimes we need to think outside of the box and go not for a full body but the impression of one.  I experimented on my sweet friend Kirsten and came up with this.  I extended the hair to give it a fantasy look and worked on faerie expressions.  I also provide a full face faerie design that has the butterfly shaped wings on the top of the eyes with fantasy line work to define the bottom for the little girls that want to "be" a faerie.  Always remember, your only limit is your imagination so knock your socks off and have fun with everything!

 

 

Painting a Dark Complexion

I love beautiful, rich, exotic skin.  It is a pleasure to work with and always presents a very unique challenge.  The world is conditioned to outine in black or very dark colors and this effect is lost on dark skin.  White is an incredible accent color when working with ethnic skin.  I feel that the strongest accent colors are black, white, red, purple, etc......actually all colors have their place and when you achieve the strongest contrast in color you get the nicest effects.  When I work with this kind of skin I may outline in a dark color but will always fininsh with stong white highlights.  Dark is to light what light is to dark.

Here's Looking at You!!!!!!

Painting eyes on eyes can be "creepy cool".  Again, boy designs can be so fun and putting that added twist of painting false eyes can really bump up your art to another level.  This can also be done with any design but here I will show this technique with a Skeleton face, a Zombie type face and the every popular Kitty Cat!!!!!.  When you do this make sure you work with the creases in the eye, follow the paint always and let things dry very well before you say "open".

Boy Designs are Fun!!!!

All the little boys want to be a super hero or as I normally say boys want to be a bug of somekind or very scary!!!!  For some of us, the girls that love to paint them, painting boy designs can be challenging but fun.  One of the best classes I ever took was from the Wolfe Brothers, Nick and Brian.  They totally teach you facial structure and how to work with that in creating an "ugly" look and how accentuate the negative to get that effect.  Working your 3-D into these designs will bump up your work and give a more realistic feel to that very extreme design, which any boy will think is wonderful.  So don't be afraid to ugly up those beautiful boys, they will love you for it!!!!
