This is a re-do of a piece called “pseudo making”….

Yes, I know the black between the teeth is too much…I am going to tone it down.

  1. I read an experienced painter say that teeth were hard to do. When I saw you mouth I thought, “Wow, she did it perfectly.”

    I am always inspired by your art. You mix classical with a punch. I mean the clouds look classical and then punch…the lips. Fantastic!!!

    Yes, teeth, lips and mouths in general are one of the hardest features to render in fiber art. I am working on some lips right now, and feeling challenged. One thing I have noticed is that the space between the top and bottom teeth can be darker. Using the same red as for the lips doesn’t work. Even though you “know” the tongue is red, it is in the shadowy cave of the mouth, so appears darker. And for the spaces between each tooth, sometimes white embroidery floss works, because it makes enough shadow to create the impression of space. Keep smilin’!
