LB2016 : Our Lady of Self-Compassion

At last another lesson from Life Book 2016 to share. This one was from Shiloh Sophia McCloud, and was a very enjoyable way to get back into my art journal. I spent some time thinking about what I want to invite more of into my life
I didn't mind finding alternatives when I didn't have her exact supplies
Her method of creating a face was so easily broken down into steps that I followed along and added colour washes as well before I remembered I was going to take more process photos ;-) Was at night anyway - so this isn't quite right with colour
And then it was time to add pattern, and I got carried away again in the process, until I felt happy that she is done

I did a sketch for this lesson, but then I never took it any further because I got distracted by Tam's droplet lesson, which I didn't do either! Oh, well, I might do them later. Love what you did with yours - the patterns are beautiful and I can relate to your words! I bet all those things are winging their way to you :)

So sweet of you to say that Zsuzsa.
I am watching more than I am doing at the moment but this just spoke to me.
