first week of 29 faces

Participating in a challenge like the 29 faces makes you realize how fast time flies. The first week of February is already over!
Here are all the faces of this week:

Day 1: graphite with black marker
Day 2: watercolour


Day 3: experiment: I took a double page in an old book, put some paint on there and then closed the book while the paint was still wet. Then I searched for a face. Not difficult to find with all that hair ;-)


Day 4: the opposite mirrored page of day 3, here I could see the profile right away


Day 5: another watercolour:


And finally day 6: just trying out different hairstyles. Not very happy with this one, but hey, it's a face :-)


That's it for this week! I had wanted to continue on a new big canvas, but alas, time is escaping me. I did however start experimenting with examples for my Soul Food Lesson in April. That was fun! I only hope I still know how to videotape everything ....

You can still subscribe for Soul Food if you want. The first 2 lessons were aired this week, but all videos are downloadable and available till the end of the year. And even though time flies, that is still a long time away :-)

I am linking this to Paint Party Friday and to 29 faces challenge. Both are exciting challenges/bloghops with lots of wonderful artists. You can participate if you want, or just enjoy all the art on display.


Thanks for visiting and leaving these lovely comments! I wish you a joyful day, and time to enjoy a relaxing weekend ♥ ♥ ♥

  16. I love the variety of faces you have created, and I admire anyone taking this challenge-still too hard for me to do! I really love the last one with her hair blowing across her face.

  17. What wonderful variety.
    The first is remarkable, such a sensitive face and the black black hair, the fifth is so skilful, painted in watercolour, and I like the birds in the third and fourth. I like all the faces very much, really.

  21. Your faces are full of personality, my favorite is number one, because it's black and white, it's edgy and effective!

  22. I think I missed both watercolor girls, they are so pretty! That Day 4 profile with the birds is my favorite, SUCH a sweet face! Love it.

  26. I love your faces. You are one of the most colorful artists around and I think the faces in color are fab, especially the watercolor ones. However, there is something about face #1 that really grabs my heart. I hope you will show more graphite and marker drawings.

  30. These are all so cool! A large majority of my art is done like you did the third and fourth one! My favorite is number one, she is a real artist and I love those dreads!! Wonderful as always!

  31. Denthe, i love day 4! The one with the little white bird. Your work is always so interesting. I love coming here for a visit. Have a great week, my friend! xx

  32. The one you don't like I love. Her hair is like rain and it's like the sun is coming through in her hair...like sunshine on a cloudy day but with emotions, bringing her hope. Very deep piece depending on how you look at it. Your faces are all beautiful, btw.

  33. Great progress on the challenge! I especially like the profile in the painted book page.
