save the carfty youtuber video hop

 You Tube will be demonetizing small you you tube  channels if they don't have 1000 subs and  4000 hours of watch time,........

Sadly my channel will be demonetized too, I do have the subscribers but I don't have the hours.

To save the small crafty youtuber lots of channel are collaborating in a video hop, showing you lots of techniques that can be used in stamping and mixed media crafts.

It would be great if you help us small channels out by hopping and watch the videos in the hop, like them and subscribe.... you might find some artists you did not know yet and you might just like there work.

AND you will be able to WIN som AWESOME PRIZES along the hop, our  sponsors have been very generous and you can win multiple prizes in each video on the hop. So what are you waiting for......

Thanks for your support :-)

another Girl Face

I have been trying to learn how to paint for a while now, I usually paint animals, for some reason I find them easier than people, but now I am trying to paint girl faces.

They are getting better, practise does work, but they still don;t come out as good as I want them to be.

This is the latest go I made at the lessons by #StegersandStein.

 Deco Art Products used:
Americana Acrylics in: True Ochre, Coral Shell, Whispering Turquoise, Antique Mauve, Mocha, Sand, Bright Blue, Cherry Red, Bright red, Warm White, Lamp Black, Hauser Medium Green, Dark Green.Colonial green, Traditional burnt Sienna.
Deco Art Media Misters in: Orange, Yellow, Green Yellow, Red and Turquoise.
Deco Art Media Gesso, Deco Art Media Matte Medium.

 It took quite long for me to get the face sorta right, she has had many looks before I was ok with the result, see the pic above and below.

I really did not like the shoulders and I didn't know how to fix them so painted them over with gesso and used a stencil to cover them.

I was fun to do and I will keep practising.
