Four More Faces


I'm working on my 29 faces, doing one face a day and having a lot of fun. The one above I did yesterday, using oil pastels on a book page that I had ripped from "Wuthering Heights". The book page, of course, is an inspiration I got from Lisa's girls.

These two girls are charcoal ones, charcoal being my favorite medium for drawing faces at the moment.


She looks a bit mad - I think she needs some coffee.

And this one I did today, wanting to try something different - a different shape to the head, the eyes way lower in the face, clearly far from reality - and I love this sassy little guy.



It's Friday - which means Paint Party Friday and Sneak Peek Friday - that's why I like Fridays so much. I'm looking forward to visit all these inspiring artists.

Nice work on the faces and I must say I think I have an attachment to the coffee gal...I look somewhat like her when I don't get my coffee fix ; ) The little fella is adorable and I especially like where you placed his eyes and their colouring. Overall I like all of them and of course those book pages look like are great fun to work with....must try them sometime . Thanks for sharing.

I think the girl you said looks mad looks more like she just rolled out of bed. Love her tousled hair. And that little guy is just FAB - so mischevious looking.

I like your drawing on text and I'll be stealing that soon - ha! But my absolute favorite is the last one. I'm working on trying to figure out how to get less realistic.

Hi - so happy I have inspired you to try these!

I love the last picture because it reminds me of my favourite doll from childhood called Timmy! I still have him.

Eeeeee! That little boy face is the cutest thing ever! I love his spikey red hair.

What I love most about your faces, Carola, is that they're all different AND with a personality. :)

That little boy face looks like he is thinking about getting into some trouble. Haa.
Happy PPF!
