*She* Art...week one

Hi all...please be gentle with me...i had my Birthday party last night...and i'm a little delicate today ;)

It was a real shame i didn't have much time to play this week, as i've enrolled on the *She* Art Workshop with the lovely Christy Tomlinson...check it out here if you don't know about it :) Here are my Week 1 canvases...portraits of 2 of my favourite people!

this one is an old friend of mine...and a proper hippy chicky...just like me :)
this second one is a new friend...but one i'm hoping will become an old friend in due course...

what do you think? i know neither of them is by any means perfect...but its only week i've got time to perfect my techniques!

one thing i must say though...this is the first time i've used the Dylusions mica sprays, by the lovely Dyan at Art from the Heart...and all i can say is *wow wow wow*...i love these!!!! just look at that beautiful pearly lime green...i only have 3 of them...but clearly i need them all now!

Dyan if you're reading this...can i have a discount for raving about them, please!! ;)

just one last word before i do you all feel about faceless girls?? i am getting used to them...and i did them this week because that was part of the project...but would you like them more with faces do you think?

Great work Alix.

I'm still not sure about faceless folk but these seem to work really well.

Happy returns Alix! I adore these gals, they are wonderful..I have no opinion about the faces; I don't think it matters really!
