Day 18 of the 29 Faces Challenge

Deep in Thought

This painting is inspired by Gustav Klimt.  I happen to love painting closed eyes, like the person is deep in thought and I don't do it enough.  This was fun to work on and I think it has given me the confidence to start working on my online class, Painting with the Masters that I have had for some time.

See you tomorrow

Day 16 and 17 of 29 Faces Challenge

Watercolor Portrait

I am counting this painting as a two day project since it took me two days to finish.  I really love the simplicity of this painting.  It is a lot different from the inspiration photo I posted on Facebook and I am glad.  I can see my style evolving.

see you tomorrow....

29 Face Challenge Days 8, 9, and 10 - Growing in Confidence

Hi, I have been busy the past couple of days with a commission to knit Hats, art projects that need to be mailed this weekend, so I did not get a chance to draw any faces.  Today I drew three, it took me about 90 minutes.  I am learning to take my time and really concentrate.  Work on getting the eyes on an even plane, etc.  This has been a real learning experience.

Day 8 More Shading
Day 9 - Side Glance

Day 10 - More Shading

See you tomorrow.
