29 faces - completed

Face 27 ... Cereal card, papers, marker pens and acrylics

Face 29 ... Cereal card, papers, marker pens and acrylics

Woo hoo, all 29 faces completed in 29 days.  As a result of this challenge.....

Found that I really did not like painting my faces in acrylic onto gesso covered card and that I also am not very good at painting backgrounds either, so resorted to using found papers.

Have fallen in love again with Golden fluid acrylics, I had forgotten how lovely they are to use.
With the pressure of completing to a tight schedule I did not embellish or finish as I possibly would have liked to.

Thank you to everyone who has kindly commented on my faces, I am still visiting everyone else and will continue to do so over the coming month.  Also a  huge thank you to Ayala Art for hosting this again.


  1. Lovely faces in those bright colors!! Love the backgrounds you used. So clever!! You have a great way of simplifying the portraits without looking childish and I think they are awesome.
    I have finished my 29 faces, so I now have some time to visit all the participants of the challenge :-)
    Have a great sunday!

  2. Yea! You did it! And they all look so bright and colorful. I love your style.

    You could always go back and add more embellishments if you want to...not that I think they need it but you mentioned it. I often let things sit for a while and then go back and add to them.

  3. Ooh, so pretty! I really like that first one with the almost 3/4 view. Great hair!

  4. Congratulations on completing 29 Faces Linda! WooHoo! They have all been a pleasure to see and I have loved every single one of them They have all had such sweet faces, I could envision them as dolls. Have a great week :0) Mo x

  5. Woohoo! congrats on finishing 29 Faces! I love the hair on your first girl. So blue and funky! It's been a pleasure viewing all of your faces. You have a super style of art that's whimsical, bright and fun. Really nice to see. I'll be back to visit and see more of your art :)

  6. I just love your faces, Linda. LOVE the first and third one the most. Especially the polka dots!! :) Well done.

  7. Congratulations of finishing! This is a fine collection. You should hang them all in the same room so they can talk to each other. And it's really cool that you discovered/rediscovered some things about media. You never know until you try something.

  8. i have seen your faces pop up on facebook and there just beautiful
