I was finally feeling well enough to provide you with a Daily Doodle using a design on my face tonight. I used my favorite arsenal of Wolfe paints, Loew-Cornell & Royal Majestic Round Brushes, and of course, one of my handmade, signature "Fantastical Flowers" which will be popping up on this site for sale in the upcoming weeks. (For those of you who know me personally, you know I never leave the house without one on.) Originally called "Nifties by Nadia"; I have chosen to incorporate the flowers into my face painting business as they just work so well with painted faces and whimsical designs. The little princesses and fairies out there love them too!)
My inspiration came from the flower itself; as it is a larger flower that hugs the side of the face, I chose to continue the flower design with paint on my face to make it all work nicely together. I used flat paint, no metallic paints, glitter, or gems, the only exception was adding some Wolf pearly white on my eyelids which give off a somewhat sparkly warm gold in the photos.
A you can see, I chose to mimic the petals in the Fantastical Flower; having the painted petals cascade down my face and lining them with a heavy black to create the illusion the flower's black underside petals.
This was one I just sort of winged tonight. It was fun to play around and get back up to speed with painting on my face again. Having been sick the past week or so, and painting solely on my arm, admittedly it was a bit weird at first re-adjusting to painting myself in a mirror, especially with painting the far sides of my face that you can't see so well in the mirror. It was fun nonetheless, and I'm pretty excited about this one, and to finally present a painted face in my Daily Doodles for you.
I'm also working with some new lighting and angles that will become more perfected as time goes on, as I want to present the best pictures I can for you to enjoy. :)
With that, I wish you all a Happy Early New Years Eve! See you tomorrow with another Daily Doodle!
