I’ve started a new challenge that I thought I would share with you!
I decided that I wanted to work a bit on portraiture so I thought of a way to keep myself interested. I am taking a class on drawing faces, specifically gorgeous girls with Kat Mcbride. Her challenge was to draw 100 faces but I didn’t want to just draw random faces. I wanted to work on creating portraits that look like the people I am drawing. I can draw faces fine but they never quite look like the person…more like their awkward sibling…
So I decided that my challenge will be to draw every face in a magazine…there are a lot of faces in a fashion magazine….just saying.
So I worked through 6 pages last might and plan to fill one page an evening until I have finished all 278 pages in the magazine.
Here is my first page.
I have also been working on some art quilts of kids…the difference with these is that with the magazine challenge I am working on accuracy and speed. These were about accuracy and layering of pencil crayon and coloring.
Lastly I have been working on painting faces using layering. Just a bit of practice and play!
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
