These were quite interesting to do. I am amazed every day at how the faces just appear. The one for the 6th is done in the style of artist Modigiliani. So few lines. I was so impressed to look at his paintings on google and see with such simplicity how he captured the character of his models. I think I will do more of these. This drawing was from a face I cut out of a magazine:
The one for the 7th is scribble drawing an actual character emerged out of the scribbles. Completely made up:

Some of the ideas come from a book called Drawing Lab For Mixed-Media Artist by Carla Sonheim. This is a fun book.

I am really aware of how tense I am when I start, afraid I will mess up so this is an excellent way to gain some confidence in my drawing.

Thanks for all your kind comments and coming to visit me.

  1. The Drawing Lab book always sounds really interesting. One day I might get around to buying it!
