4 Colours Faces

Hello... its another glorious sunny day here on the Essex coast.
Hope your weekend is going well.
Linking today to Kim Dellow 'Show your face'  come show your face too.

I challenged myself to paint some faces using only 4 water colour paints: Hookers green, Indian red, Cadmium orange hue and Prussian blue

Egg timer turned upside twice

I decided to see if I could do a quick faces for a change so borrowed my husbands egg timer - he's the cook so I guess that makes it his egg timer. I didn't get very far the first time so had to turn it upside down again.

Still using 4 colours but gave up with the egg timer

And as I love digital arts too and love that I can re-use what I've made with out really altering it - I created this when hearing a certain song playing.
For additional pieces I used a lovely free digi kit by Algera Designs called 'Trick or Treat. There were some lovely paint splodges in the kit which I thought would work with my painting and look like tears.

Thanks for much
