Fabulous Faces on-line workshop

I don't draw faces very often, but have always loved Judy Wise's people. I'm participating in Judy's fabulous on-line workshop at the moment and am so inspired by the way Judy paints faces, she demonstrates so many different techniques and ways to paint. Check it out here it's well worth it.


this was my first face, I loved this process and it only took half an hour
I'm still working through the others.

I'm also conducting a gelli printing workshop from home on Saturday the 26th of April, if you are able to attend drop me an email. I will also be creating an on-line workshop of this class too.
Below are some of the prints that we will make and then turn them into a book, collage them and build up layers of paint. We will also be gelli printing on  fabric too.


this one uses a Chris Cozen stencil


the left page has been printed and collaged, waiting for painted images.
the right page has had the paint added too.

these are gelli printed fabrics, I build up the designs in layers like screen printing.


this is a fabric page from my latest commissioned journal that is now completed.

Thanks so much for dropping by and for your lovely comments.

Happy Creating

I love your Gelli print pages and fabrics - they are so inspiring. I must gather my courage and have a go myself. The face is excellent too.

Judy Wise said...

As always, your glorious paintings inspire and delight me. Thanks for the shout out too; big hug from Oregon. xoxo

It's a bit mad but I have a gelli and I haven't used it yet. What is wrong with me ????? This is gorgeous. I'm joining Judys group when I have finished a couple if big paintings I'm working in.

Thanks for the useful tips for making marks on a Gelli plate. A perfect excuse for buying store baked cakes and eating them!!

The face you've drawn is very expressive and many things can be interpreted through her look. I absolutely love your first book print and would enjoy to have a journal with those covers.

That is a great first face ;) I think gelli printing was made just for you & your delicious color & pattern! Loved your wall below & the stool was great too!

Just found this post, now September. Have I missed your online class or is it still going to happen? Hopefully the latter. Will lokk through more recent posts to see if I can find the answer. You work is beautiful.

Hi Kiwiquilter, this wasn't one of my workshops. The image was one that I did in Judy Wise's online workshop. She may still be running the workshop, if you check out her blog.
