Faces in Collage

I'm presently taking Sharon's (All NoraS Art) Faces in Collage class.  I finally completed my first one.   Sharon has great video instructions.  I could watch her paint all day.  She makes it seem so effortless!   I'm so taken with faces....I've played a lot with them but never felt very good at them.  This class gives me a chance to play with the face already in place.  I just get to redecorate it.  It's really a challenge to get the values/shadows right and sometimes I find my paint has dried on my palette while I'm working.  Then I have a problem getting the right color mix again.  Oh well......practice, practice!
Original glue down before painting
and the redecorated version
She reminds me of the Avatar woman even though she is not blue.

I found your info to be pretty consise and to the point. I had a bet on this, and with your info, I think I may have won it

...an amazing concept; I can see why you'd enjoy this class so much. First you love the picture/collage, and then you get to do your own thing with it!

Great job...it's lovely...I signed up for the class too but haven't had time to watch any of the videos.

I can see the avatar resemblance since you mentioned it; somehow it's that very straight nose I think. Your redo is great....I might try it myself!

I agree, she resembles like the movie avatar.
