Lightbox and more Faces

"Martin" (when open 11 x 8")
Ingredients: Acrylic paint, masking tape eyebrows, gel pen, sequence waste.
Working intuitively with paint from a rough sketch.

These are all journal pages from different size journals taken in my studio in my newly created lightbox. I made it out of things I already had. I used a wing chair some rigid plastic board, medium weight canvas and my standing lamp with the natural spectrum bulb. I like that you can see the texture of the canvas in the background. I took me less than an hour to set it up and take these first 3 pictures. I am very pleased how natural the lighting is in these shots.

"Strut" (open is 18 x 11")
Ingredients: Acrylic paint, wine label, Pan Pastels, oil pastel, rake shaped palette knife, sand paper, decorative paper,

"LUV" (Moleskine open 7 x 5 1/2)

Ingredients: Letters used as mask, decorative tape, acrylic paint, Pentel color brush (red), sketched with Pentel Brush Pen, Pan Pastels, Dragonfly punch

My old scanner doesn't work with my new Mac so I need to get a new one sometime. But now at least I can take pictures of my art even in the dark with nice lighting. Hopefully this will help me get more regular posts up on my blog. :)
