Friday Face Off - One Quilted, One Painted

Welcome to another Friday Face Off.
Following a prompt developed by Nicole at DVArtist,
a few of us create faces in various media. 
Today my new creation is a lady created in 
fusible applique and quilted. 
I love doing these as they present a different type 
of challenge for me. This particular face 
required me to change the color of her nose
AFTER it was quilted. 
Yes, I took a photo and realized that the yellow half of
the nose didn't play well because of an
extreme in contrast. What to do?
I simply took a Derwent Inktense pencil and 
changed the yellow to a blue/green shade. 

Next up is a rather old painting. 
In fact, it is so old I don't remember when I painted it. 
This is painted on a canvas board, 
probably because I was trying to be "frugal"
-some would say "cheap" - 

She is interesting but flawed - like most of us. 
I do like the way I used multiple colors
to create the vignette background. 

Until Next Time,  
Stay Creative

I love your quilted face, so many possibilities with these! She looks a little sleepy like she just got up in the morning. Her eyelashes are especially great, and her nose color is now perfect. When we don’t like something we’ve done there are always ways to change it. Super job, Gene!

DVArtist said...

OMGosh Gene that quilted face is just stunning. Your painted piece show a lot of character and a bright smile. You do have a lovely way with color in both pieces. Thank you for joining Friday face Off, FFO

Jeanna said...

Two more 'gallery' worthy pieces. I amazes me what you can do with various mediums.

I am a HUGE fan of fabric and stitch. This is a very original face and I really LOVE it. I sure like how you colored the nose. It turned out great. I also like the hand drawn face. I like the background, too. You are a real artist with much talent.
