29 Faces - Day 6

Welcome to day 6 of 29 Faces.  I have been allowing myself to play with my not-so-used-often supplies.  There will obviously always be your favorite things to work with, and for me at the moment is charcoal pencil and a 9B graphite pencil.  I normally use them to sketch the image once I have laid down the background colors and also use it a lot within the shading - they are great.  Along side gesso, which can give you some lovely textures.

Day 6 of 29 faces

This painting has been done as my front cover on a journal I made recently for The One BadAss Art Journal which you can still sign up for if you want to join us!

You don't have to complete a full painting for this challenge, you can just do sketches if that is what you have time for.  I have also used it to help me complete images that have gone unfinished, use it to work for you and remember to have fun!
