THE SOUL ALWAYS KNOWS....

The Soul always knows what to do to Heal it Self. The challenge is to silence the mind.
That's what I wrote on this page - (found on Pinterest).
The eyes were cut out from a magazine and glued down on the background made with watercolor.
The nose and mouth are drawn with pencil and watersoluble colored pencils.

 It was nice  to nearly complete a face with just eyes given.


I am happy that I could use my homemade supplies 
as there are a scratched foamplate, great to use as a tool 
to make fab backgrounds and a hot-glue-stencil 
this time used as a stamp.


Masculine / Feminine
and


in the end I messed her up with to much charcoal-
 ... but no matter...just a page!

  2. Mir gefallen beide Versionen - mit mehr Holzkohle und ohne, sie sieht mehr Dramatisch aus mit der dunkle Stift. Eine sehr schöne Arbeit libe Susi! Dir einen schönen Tag, GLG, Valerie

  14. Great idea to use the magazine eyes and then paint round them, and good to see your own handmade stencil and stamp. I so admire the way you make such fascinating art every day.

  15. I like both versions of your page, the extra charcoal seems to frame the eyes beautifully.

  16. Golly, I like them both, Susi. But I think I prefer the first one best. I'm the type who usually quits far too soon, so the simpler entry was one I would be happy with.

  18. Just a page!?! A wonderful page I would say. You know Susi, the ancients believed that the eyes were the windows to the soul. I do love your page!

  19. Mir gefällt die erste Version ohne Holzkohle am besten, da sieht das Gesicht so schön nebulös geheimnisvoll aus. Wieder ganz raffiniert gestaltet, super Susi.
