I have been seeing lots of faces on lots of blogs lately and it made me want to try my hand at them again.
Not bad. Kinda long/skinny. This is done with pencil and sharpie.
Now I need to learn how to do the pretty coloring that so many others do. I've tried oil painting faces before and, quite frankly, not so good.
I noticed Martha Lever has been trying color pencils. EEEEEEK!!!! I really am not good at using those all by themselves - I don't know how to do all the blending necessary to get depth/dimension. When I have some time, maybe I'll find an online tutorial.
Someone else did some beautiful, realistic faces with acrylic paint in her journal - I'll have to hunt that one down again.
Anyway, just a little sketching while relaxing in front of the television after a day of taxes. (I also do Sudoku while watching TV but that's not all that interesting to talk about! lol)
I'll be back as soon as I can - I have another piece I finished last week that I need to photograph again and post.
Thanks for stopping by ~ Sherry
