Temagami Sunset

ART PROMPT - #12 – Use old make-up

Temagami Sunset - make-up painting

So the prompt is to use make-up to make something creative!

When I pulled this prompt, I thought “I don't have any old make-up”. Well guess what?  Don't   I throw anything away!

I was a little worried about not having enough variety of colour, so I did a test of what I had.

It looked like sunset colours to me. Here's my inspiration photo.

I chose a 9" x 12" (140 lb) watercolour paper.

I started by applying tanning make-up as background and using an eyeliner for the trees.  The rubber end on the eyeliner worked great for spreading the black around. 

Lip gloss and eye shadow did the rest.
