Still doing faces .....

I had been thinking about starting another painting this week, but I've been too busy with the 29 faces challenge. It always amazes me how much time it takes to produce a face every single day. Even though I had planned to not pressure myself and just draw a circle with 2 circles in it on days that I don't have time, I find I can't do that. So what I do now is on days I have a bit more time I start several faces at once, an then I can finish them on days I have less time. It works for me, even though it's still hard work sometimes. But it's also very rewarding, because I get a lot of practice and at the end of the month I'm left with 29 faces to use and re-use in my art :-)

That said, here's my face for today: another weirdo ;-)


And yesterday's face, a miniature-painting, acrylics on canvasboard


And here are this week's faces:

Number12: yes .... weirdo .... ;-)


Number 13: watercolour sketch


Number 14: scribble-face (I'm having so much fun with these :-) )


Number 15: another miniature-painting: acrylics on canvasboard


Number 16: another scribble-face
That's it for this week. Linking to Paint Party Friday and to 29 faces, and to Show your Face. Thanks so much for visiting, and for those of you also participating in the 29 faces challenge: keep going! We're more than halfway! (eeek! meaning February is almost over ....)

I'll leave you with this funny for this week. Well, actually it's not really a funny, but I love it so much and I want to share it with you :-)


Wishing you a lovely day, and a beautiful weekend! ♥ ♥ ♥

  2. LOVE your weirdos! ♥♥♥♥♥ Great idea to start several faces at once for those days when you don't have time to start from scratch. I might have to steal that idea! Thanks!

  10. I'm really enjoying your little weirdo series - they're so cute and for some reason remind me a little of dopey the dwarf in the Disney version of Snow White!I think it's the big baggy sad eyes!!
    It always amazes me how you can come up with so many different ways to draw faces yet they are all so you!

  21. Always such a fun visit here...I love all the new faces. So much variety. Like you I stretch it over a few days...It has to be when the mood strikes too, or when I have a good block of time for it!! Thanks for sharing and yes you have more to reuse...some artist even collage bits and pieces of their faces reprinted into their other art...so much potential with art as good as yours!!

    Hugs Giggles

  24. What a brilliant collection of faces! I love the scribble face - it's really inspired me to give this a go! Also what a good idea to begin several faces when you have a day with a bit more time. I'll try that too! Thank You, Denthe. You always inspire! xx

  25. So lovely to see the different styles you use although they are all identifiably yours!
    I agree with you on the demand this challenge takes to complete and the satisfaction of finishing. Its definitely good practice! I think starting a few faces at one time is a top tip! Thanks for sharing xx

  30. Snoopy knows it all.
    These faces are terrific in their different styles. The scribbly ones are very clever and the weirdos are something quite different.
