Hallowe’en Face Painting

It’s been ages since I painted on a ‘live’ canvas, so this Hallowe’en I decided to dust off my face paints for a bit of fun

Luckily I was with a game bunch who were happy to let me loose on their faces

Things got a bit smudgy during the fabulous feast…

Another bombona

For this version of the ‘design classic’ gas bottle (bombona in Spanish) I put a wash of acrylic paint over the charcoal drawing and then applied a crackle glaze and stains.
