Anyone can join in so why not give it a go?
Well I did it!! 29 faces in February!
This is my last face for this challenge-another quick watercolour, again wanting to be braver with colour.
Sorry about the poor quality photo. I did a quick watercolour face while I was cooking tea, and had to photograph it inside under the kitchen lights. But I wanted to get it up here so that I have successfully completed the challenge-well I will have if I manage to do a picture tomorrow. I do wish I didn't have to go out to work-it just gets in the way of the rest of my life!!
Acrylics, watercolour paints and watercolour pencils:
Today I wanted to try something involving bold colour. I am very timid using colour on faces, so this is a great challenge for me.
I was really busy, and didn't think I would get a face done today, but then I came across this and was able to make this face in about 10 seconds!! fun!
This is one I did right back at the beginning of this whole challenge so that I had one up my sleeve if I didn't manage to do a new one. Tonight I am just too tired to make the effort to do a new one.
A very quick collage with watercolours for today's face:
Today's face is a watercolour baby face. I really like the hat!!
Back at work today, and feeling very tired, so I've decided today's face will be one from my photo shoot yesterday, when I took photos of the cast of a play being put together for the Fringe Festival. The play is Victorian so this silhouette is apt.
Playing with acrylics today:
Today's face was done with watercolour pencils. I'm really happy with the nose on this one:
Very busy day today, so a quick pen sketch. I found a photo of a very old wrinkled woman and thought I'd make a highly lined sketch of her.
A bit more ambitious today-I had lots of fun with this collage style mixed media portrait, inspired by the tutorials on Flutterbye.ning. See how cleverly I avoided painting hair.
Pencil drawing of my son-the mouth and nose are like him, but the eyes are wrong.
Watercolours-trying not to be so timid with the paint:
My proportions and perspective are improving, but I wish I could paint and draw hair!!
Pencil and Promarkers- never used promarkers before.
This is the last in the series from the you tube tutorial. As they say on XFactor-Now I just need to 'make it my own!'-and to learn how to draw hair!!
Today's photo is another following the came youtube lesson as linked in Feb 6th portrait. I think following this leeson will make a difference to how I draw portraits in the future, and I'll be able to take what I've learned to help develop my own style.
Watercolour pencils-in a hurry today and the paint bled somewhat so she looks a bit bearded!!
This is a pencil drawing following a demonstration I found on youtube.
Oil pastels and watercolour pencils:
My first ever portrait in acrylics-It's meant to be my daughter, but it doesn't look a thing like her!
Black watercolour pencil:
Water colour pencils. Really happy with her nose.
