29 faces {september edition}

i had been waiting for the 29 faces to start again so i could participate. i truly enjoyed this past spring even with my personal struggles in the middle portion....and a bit of an ominous start here....see her skeptical eye? wondering why i gave her green skin? why do i think i can do this? can't she have more hair? and what is with all of those wrinkles- do i have to draw those in too?



i missed day one, but, started on day 2 and did today for day 3. i am hoping to find my mojo again.....as i seem to be a bit lost...too heavy with the pencil and charcoal.

i did truly begin to appreciate the practice everyday thing- and need to stick with it this time. it may seem difficult to get started but, once you get going you have it and it will grow. i have grown a fondness for drawing/ painting faces. now i am not saying that the faces are perfect or beautiful, but, i have had a good time and that should count for something.


here is to 29 faces....so glad you are back.

  6. Like the others, I like your style--loose and free in spite of your personal angst about it! Very cool!

  7. Like your faces! Do you know about Julia Kay's Portrait Party? Google it - it is a flickr/facebook group and is a lot of unstressful fun.

  8. I love to see living faces, not only cute and doll-like. Bald and wrinkled, that is life! Your colors are awesome.
