The lovely Kim Dellow is asking us to join her for some Friday face drawing/painting, here is what Kim has to say:
Do you fancy joining in on this portraiture journey?
It can be any type of face, realistic, stylised, whimsical and you can use any materials you like, pencil, paint, pastels etc., just as long as it is your own work, i.e not a commercially available stencil or stamp.
Are you up to for it? I do hopes so! Let's have some face fun! Meet you here next Friday for some more.
My sketching is not good, i am trying to learn about placement and dimensions so each time i draw a face it is always a surprise how it turns out.
My favourite way of making them look good is to use an App called Pixlr-o-matic on my phone. So many possibilities and i always think my sketching's look so much better afterwards. Just found out i can also use this via chrome and as a download onto a laptop or computer, how exciting. you can tell what i will be doing after this blog post can’t you!
I am a tad scared at showing my faces so i hope you will be gentle with me and remember i am a complete beginner…
This particular sketch was done with a 2B Pencil, i didn’t like how her eyes or mouth looked so added the crosses.
The frame was added via Pixlr.
In a completely different style is this scary woman, added writing around her face and body but i can’t remember what i have written lol. Again the frame was added via Pixlr.
This is one of the first sketches i used coloured pencils on, a set of Staedtler Ergosoft from Tesco.
These are not my first attempts will take pictures of them so i can share another time.
I do hope you can find the time to come and play along, i am hopeful you must have some sketches/drawings/paintings somewhere that you would like to share.
I apologise to all those of my lovely Followers who can draw, please be gentle…
Thanks for dropping by, looking forward to your lovely comments.
Enjoy your weekend!
