My Latest Obsession
I've seen some really great faces out there, and let me tell you it's really stirred up my desire to learn this art.
I have looked at so many sites and there are a lot of great videos and classes to take, but I can't decide which one I want to take next.
Do you have a favorite?
It took me forever to do this sketch, (I need to buy another eraser) but I really like how it turned out. However, learning about paints and shading is another thing, and I was afraid to add paint here thinking I would "mess it up."
I don't always like to add lashes, but after seeing some videos on YouTube I thought I'd give it a try.
This second face I tried to just keep simple so I could practice with blending skin tones with acrylics.
I think I learned a few things during this painting process, so I'm eager to try again.
I still think I will add some collage to the background or hair, what do you think?
The great thing about a sketch book/art journal is it's a great place for me to practice.
If any of you have a favorite online class that helped you with faces, please let me know. I'd like to learn more about this art!
Hope your week is going well,
I've been enjoying the rainy days we've been having here.
I had Sam take a sketching class back home and he loved it. It was all pencil art and then i had him in an oil class.
I have to do this...i love to doodle and it looks so relaxing!
Love love the peanuts!
Both of the above offer fabulous courses. I've had fun practicing both styles. They aren't free, but I think they're worth every penny. Couldn't draw a face to look normal for the life of me, and have finally been getting better with their instructions.
Really tho, you've done an amazing job, dont think you really need a course, lol.
