Normally I'm a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants type of girl. I'm a deadline thriver. Lately though, I knew I had to slow down and it has been really good for me.
The spark is glimmering that much more brightly and I feel a zing running through my batteries. The trick now will be to keep it there, fan the flames and harness all that warmth and energy in a healthy way - without getting burnt!
Now I know when I said I was experimenting, you might not think that these two ladies look much different to my usual style. The 'face on old book page' has become a bit of a signature of mine - in fact, it was Art Every Day Month this time last year that set me on this particular storyline in the first place.
Well, they are not the experimental results... you'll have to wait until tomorrow for those. I'm saving the best for Paint Party Friday!
There is a new richness in these ones anyway - achieved through my new-found fascination with the Derwent Inktense pencil.
