Would you like to de-stress a little this Christmas?
I can't wave a magic wand but I CAN share some tips/ideas that help me to manage my stress levels at this crazy time of year and of course, art always slows us down. The girl is holding some 'fairy lights' - you can never have too many fairy lights, right?! ;)
I'm also showing you the full process (starting at about 8 mins) for creating the portrait above entitled All Is Calm. I've sped the recording up, so you'll see the whole project in just over 20 minutes.
I used willow charcoal, warm white soft pastel, charcoal pencils and compressed charcoal on toned paper. Here is the link to the reference photo I used.
I hope you enjoy this video and please share with your friends.
