day 12

day 9

It may seem as if I pulled a disappearing act - but I was away for a few days last week.  I continued to play with faces - but had no opportunity to post.  Quick descriptive comments:

day 15 -  Another little lady on an ATC - If you enlarge her you will see the tiny swarovski crystals on her headband.

day 14 - was admiring Modigliani's work and decided to (unsuccessfully) try to paint a lady in that style.  What I got was a Grant Wood caricature of a Grant Wood painting.  Oh well - I'll try again.

day 13 - a face I started long ago and found in my sketchbook less than half done.  I finished the hair and put in the features (fairly funky features if I do say so) and applied some Pan Pastels.

day 12 - saw this child's picture in a newspaper when I was away.  I really need work on young children's faces and I actually tore out the picture but lost it.  I didn't quite finish the mouth but it was a pretty good likeness (you'll have to take my word for it)

day 11, 10 - my grandson was watching Pokemon on TV and I decided to quick sketch the faces I saw to see what made them work (show emotion, etc).  Finished the coloring and hair over the next 2 days.

day 9 - the day before VBS started this past summer, I was asked to create a life-size Jesus for the program.  Well, needless to say, it was a real rush job.  It was hung high up on a wall but after VBS was done my friend said he wanted to hang it in the children's area.  I took it home against his protests (it looks fine) to just fix up a bit - his skin was pretty green and his mouth was completely wrong. Hanging in on a low wall - well I didn't want him to scare the wee ones.  Not nearly complete in my eyes but not scary and I didn't feel like starting over.

Thant was the week and a half that was - sorry for so many images in one post.  Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed and art filled day.
