Paint Party Friday: Week 34, Year 4 Check-In

Happy Hallowe'en PPFers!! Welcome to Week 34 of Year 4 at Paint Party Friday.

This week random.org chose #80 - Pauline Leger. Pauline painted a young Bob Dylan, inspired by the song "Blowing in the Wind", while pondering the recent acts of terrorism especially here (for EVA) in Ottawa at the War Memorial and Parliament Hill. Please check out her post. She also shows the various stages in the creation of this portrait.

Welcome to Year 4, Week 30 of PPF!
This week random.org chose #20 - Sharon Evans. Sharon has been widely creative recently, participating in two challenges and so she had lots of art to display. (Check it out!)

Paint Party Friday: Week 28, Year 4 Check-In

Welcome to Week 28, Year 4 of PPF!

This week Random.org chose #14 - Martha of Ayala Art. Sometimes the random # generator choses in oddly appropriate ways. Twice a year Ayala Art holds the 29 Faces challenge - in September and February. Some of you are participating this session. Others of us have participated on past occasions. All in all, it is a fun challenge that usually leads to great improvement or creativity in portraiture! Here is Martha's textured face for the 8th day of her challenge.
