Sylvan glow

Today's face for 29 Faces, was inspired by a line from a book I was reading while Chunky was watching Star Wars 3D with his friends. The book is called" The Secret lives of Elves and Faeries" from the Private journal of Rev. Robert Kirk, sent to me by the lovely Magaly Guerrero.

I decided to do a mixed media piece in my altered board book (video by Amy)...
first making a very basic sketch of the face I wanted to create.
Then I built up layers of watercolour...
followed by Stabillo All coloured pencils...
and finally Acrylic paint for the background, followed by a bit of doodling in blue ink :D
And the line from the book?
"The eyes were almost completely circular and were without pupil or iris, being wholly dark - though at the same time somehow glowing."

Enjoy :D XXX
