Working on a freebie mixed media ebook...

I get so involved in the art making that I keep forgetting to take pictures of the process.  To make an ebook, you have to take loads of pictures.  I'm really happy with the outcome of the art piece in question.  Staying true to creating intuitively I had some funny things come up on the canvas that could not stay.  At one point I saw a face and I had to outline it.  Came out looking like a cross between the Jester and Michael Jackson.  I had used some alcohol inks and you can't really get rid of the splotches on his forehead and eye.  They bleed through everything, so I had to glue more paper over the ink to make sure they would be covered up.  Here is a teaser!




You see what I mean?  He ended up with sunglasses to cover up the creepy eyes. Lol...he will languish under all the other layers and maybe add a vibe or two to the finished piece.  Having lots of fun with this project!  What are you working on?

Love these colours you used (lol I think I say this on all the work you post! You always use yummy colours). Looking forward to seeing more process pictures of your art, it's really interesting to see!
