29 faces challenge: all my faces so far :-)

The kids have one week off from school, so this week we have been painting and doing things in our new house and there wasn't that much time for art. But I did something every day! I couldn't keep up with posting every day though, so now I'm posting every 2 or 3 days. So far it's going well.

I'll show you all the faces I've made so far. Today's face was a little intuitive painting. This is what I started with:

I saw a big eye and a chin ....

So I brought it out ....

This is yesterday's face: watercolour sketch:

I don't use watercolours very much, but every time I do I really enjoy it. It works a lot faster than acrylics which comes in handy when you're short on time :-)

And here are the other faces I did until now:
The first one: sketch in graphite 

Second one: another small intuitive painting

Third one: the first of my weird ones ;-)

Number 4: another sketch in graphite

Fifth face: a quick ink-drawing

Sixth face: graphite and marker

Face number 7: another weird one (I will have to practice a lot more with these text stamps .... :-) )

Number 8: the one with the bird in her hair...

And the 10th face: coloured pencil sketch inspired by Jane Davenport

That's it for now. Can't believe I did 11 faces already! This is such a fun challenge! And very good practice!

That's it for now. Thanks so much for visiting and commenting in such beautiful ways. I will get back to visit everyone who comments here, even if it takes a few days :-)

Linking to Paint Party Friday, to Show your Face and to 29 faces. Hop on over to those blogs and treat yourself to some eye-candy!

Finishing with my funny of the week:

hahaha ... right! I do that :-)

I'll be back in 2 days with my next 2 faces! See you then ♥ ♥ ♥
