29 Faces Final check-in #23 - 29 or there abouts...

Final check-in for the 29 faces challenge. Though I have been practicing faces every day this month, most of them were just quick scribbles in my journal. 

As today is the 30th of september I thought I would add a quick painting in my art journal and then call it a day.

I think I learned a lot by just doing a face every day and it has been an interesting experience. I will try and keep sketching a face every day, be it in my journal, or whatever medium I have at hand =). So maybe someday I will be able to just sit somewhere and sketch people passing by...I would so love to be able to do that.

I don't have my regular camera at the moment, so here are some shots made with my iPhone.

Here's a collection of the faces I did in my journal.

Some are goofy and very quick.

Others are a bit more elaborate.

Often something that caught my eye at that moment.

Like a sleeping kitty... =)

Or my docters visit...

Trying different styles.

Because, well actually, I don't have a style, I just do what I feel like at the moment. As I did tonight.

So those are my 29 Faces in 30 days and I had fun doing them. I have no clue how many I made, because I lost count at some point...

So thank you Ayala, for hosting this and inspiring me to go and do a face a day any which way I liked. I learned a lot and I enjoyed looking at what the other participants made. Though I have not been commenting much... Life has a tendancy to get in the way of those things.

Thank you for watching and I wish you a wonderful week.
