Art Journal Page: What I see in the mirror [Wanderlust Prompt #5]


I decided yesterday that I would catch up with some of the Wanderlust 2016 class activities, and watched Birgit Koopsen’s class as she demonstrated her signature style. This is my response to the fifth journal prompt from the beginning of March (‘what I see in the mirror’) using her techniques, albeit in a slightly different order! And it’s probably more of a reminder of what I should be seeing in the mirror rather than what I do… Anyhow, I wanted the background to show through the white layer (given I’d spent so long working on it!), so used I used thinned gesso for its translucency. I think the colours certainly zing against the white mask.

  1. A great page, Neil. That’s something we all need to remind ourselves of when we look in the mirror! I sometimes think God has a funny sense of humour, though, when I see my reflection first thing in the morning!!
