I started out with a quick doodle of a face in one of my journals. Trying to make a face from a more side view.
And I realy wasn't happy with that. I clearly need a lot more practice here.
So I tried the same thing in my bigger altered book art journal. And apparently I am in a green phase right now...note to self: "Try some other colors!
I wasn't happy with the balance on the page, nor with the drawn face.
So I doodled a realy quick funny face in another journal. It took me half a minute, but it made me happy. Look, she even looks happy,
After that I could proceed with the page, having identified what it was that was bugging me.
Added some color accents and journalling about what it was I found out.
I do feel much better about her now and I told myself to Stop Hiding....
I still feel I need a lot more practice with this, but I guess it's alright. I will get there, practice is everything when drawing faces.
So those were my face 5, 6 and 7 for the challenge, still keeping up. I'm off now to check out what my fellow artists are doing with their faces and see if I can find some inspiration in that for my next faces... and maybe lay off the green for a bit.
I wish you all a wonderful sunday and happy painting, or whatever it is that makes you happy =)
