Layered Portrait Close-ups & Video


I filmed a  quick tutorial on how I layer make my layered portraits in my art journal.  I love how this girl turned out!  I find it really relaxing and fun to play with all my art supplies while building layers in my art journal and collage paper.  Sometimes I'll sketch a face over the top and fill it in with a little bit of color with oil paintsticks.  I love how the bits of collage, spray ink and oil pastels peek through her face.  Check out the tutorial on Youtube:

I love how simple the techniques are, and how easy it is to create a lusciously layered portrait!


If you're interested in learning more, how about take a class with me sometime?  You can also join my newsletter to keep up-to-date on where I'll be teaching (in person or online!).
