Art Journal: Portrait of Girl

portraitofgirl.jpg

I've decided to start an art journal to use as an exploration devise for collage and background techniques I'm learning. I expect some experiments will go better than others.

As I'm inexperienced with painting faces, I chose this portrait of a girl to start. I want to add collage and layering to faces down the line, but also want to get more comfortable with painting the faces as subjects.

Do you have any tips for keeping an art journal? Favorite papers? Favorite techniques? Let me know!
