leftover face 1s

I painted these faces with leftover paint on leftover paper cut from the edges of larger paintings.

 Just some quick impressions from a folder of magazine and newspaper photos I’ve accumulated.

      There are so many interesting faces in the world! In fact, all of them have their charms. I’m always tearing out photos that catch my eye. And nice not to overwork something…easy to do with watercolor.

        Like snowflakes, no two faces are alike (thank God!). 🙂
        I like watercolors a lot, although I’ve never tried that medium and from what I’ve heard you have to know what you’re doing. I’ll leave the art to you … 🙂

        Watercolors do have a mind of their own. But sometimes that’s a good thing. I’m a big fan of the unexpected.

    So inspiring! Now I am encouraged to revisit my folder of faces. So nice to know I’m in good company with this face-collection interest! Now, to retrieve the clipping of Daniel Day-Lewis…
