Live with Promise

We all live in such a busy world and time goes by in a blink of an eye. There is a beautiful TCW stencil I use often in my work “Live Love Laugh” it reminds me to slow down and take a breath.

I have combined part of it in my next piece

“Live with Promise”


I like to blend from one colour to another when using the stencils as I like the effect.

It is fun to use the back ground colour in the faces rather than blocking in a flesh tone each time. Variety is the spice of life.

I hope you enjoy watching the video and have some fun experimenting with different back ground colours.
