AEDM- Face 10 - Overcoming Fears




































For the Art Everyday Month I am attempting to overcome my fear of painting directly into my sketchbook. This may seem like a small thing but for me it is huge. Usually I sketch in my book, then make copies to paint. I am also working on my writing skills each painting will have a story. This painting is a story about a girl named Janna, who walks around with this scowl on her face as her protection against being shy.

I like how each painting will have a story, fun!

What a great start to AEDM, and I love your goal to paint directly into your sketchbook and write a story for each image! I can relate to this girl, having been very shy when I was younger. Beautiful!

I get a bit nervous about painting directly into my journal also and just have to grit my teeth and jump in on some days!!! Looking forward to following along on AEDM

I love that you have a goal.
A great painting, would love to hear the story!

I rarely paint in my sketch book either. I find when I do I often end up with something I wish I'd put on something more permanent.

I haven't been painting much lately. Hope to get back to it soon...bur for now...ink, pencils, and water color pencils are doing the trick. (and a little computer art.)
good luck this month.
