5x7 CHALLENGE : : WEEK #2

compassion

Okay, this is week 2 and I am feeling pretty good about the momentum and expectation of posting regularly.  I started out collaging paper unto this canvas.  Actually, this has become a very comfortable start for me.  If some show through, it shows through and if it doesn't, it doesn't.  The idea is to start.  And, I am not looking at a blank white canvas.  I begin to sketch in a face with pencil and ink making corrections and then begin painting allowing myself to still make adjustments with paint.  I work the paint until it works out.  I finished it using pencil, marker and gel transfer for the word "compassion".
