Face 14 of 29 faces

This one face was a "stain" as well, but the color was so light, I decided to keep working with m pencil. Whenever I keep working on it, it will be a pretty face, I can tell from now. ;o)


Thanks for visiting! Are you keeping up still?
The hardest part is the posting, I think!

Face 13 of 29. More messy brushwork

I am allowing myself just a few brush strokes  per page.  It looks crazy lol
I am hoping to have more time in the near future to work the next steps, but for now, this is where I am stopping :o)

Face 11 of 29 faces. Messy face

What elements make a face, a face? When does a splash turn into a face?
I am really enjoying painting the minimum  to make a face look like a face.
It is hard for me, loving detail so much, but if you try it, it is a good exercise, and you can always come back and do your familiar thing.
For this challenge I always like trying abstracts and stopping to see what is happening at that time on the composition and the face.

No art today

In honor of the 9/11 tragedy, I do not post art today.
I read that this generation starting high school this fall, is the 1st one that will hear and learn about the 9/11 before they were born. So it was not part of their lives, and yet, we all were marked one way or another in this nation and in the world. Things are done much different now, after that and not really for the better.
I will continue with my challenge tomorrow.

Day 9 of 29 faces

How are you doing in your challenge? We are starting the 2nd week!
For this week if you like a prompt, try to change the size of your work. If you work on a small scale, try to make a larger face, and if you paint big, try a miniature.
I am trying expressions and you can tell she is not happy lol

This is the beginnings of face 6:


And the 7th, which I will make more, based on a simple stain:

29 faces in September 01

I am a bit early, but really, I have to! lol  Next week it will be super busy adjusting to the challenge, the first few days are always busy, and then it takes its own rhythm.

For my first day I made this for Gina's traveling journal, and I will be posting the video later on, but it was a lot of fun!!

What are you going to do to challenge yourself?
I usually do very lose paintings, since most of the time I tend to paint tight, and there is nothing wrong with either, but it is good to get out of the comfort zone, to discover new things!

Please remember to use the tags/Labels in your posts! ;o)

How to do shading in a drawing

Fun and easy way to do shadowing in a drawing, for beginners but also people that have some experience painting . In this case I started with a circle, that ends in an apple.
