Still More Faces


Hard to believe... I'm still active in the 29 Faces challenge and I have 17 faces "under my belt" - the top one counts as two. I really love to paint these roundheads, they are so much fun. These are Mipf and Mupf, names that Kaefer gave them.

This is Isabel
She looks a little bit like my goddaughter, especially the eyes. Isabel (the "real" one) has quite unusual eyes and I tried to reflect it in this painting.

Now meet the skater who seems to be in a lousy mood
I still want to change her/him - make the eyebrows a little thicker, put a soul patch on, hang eight Olympic medals around his neck - well, I guess you know who this could become. Maybe.

After that I dipped my fingers - well, my brush actually - into watercolors again, and 1,2,3 "die wilde Hilde" (wild Hilde) evolved - I wonder what she is making up in her mind. It can't be good.


And last but not least, here's no-name - s/he sits on the front cover of a journal, an altered composition book that I am currently working on.


It's quite clear which faces I really enjoy, isn't it?

I'm linking this to Paint Party Friday and Sneak Peek Friday again, please take a look at all these wonderful artists. There is so much talent in blogland.

I can tell from your writing how much pleasure you're getting from painting. Such fun characters, I'm loving the mischief in Hilde's face!!

congrats on keeping up with the 29 Faces challenge. So many great faces here! My favorite is the winking one with the cool hair. That one reminds me of someone- who is quite a character.

Die Gesichter sind klasse, das untere gefällt mir ganz besonders. Unabhängig davon, habe ich gestern Aebend auf einem Schmierblatt versucht, einen Kopf zu malen (von der Seite), ist gar nicht so einfach, wie es aussieht.

FUN faces- I love the skater and Isabelle!I think keeping up with the 29 Facers is almost as challenging as painting 29 faces!
Happy PPF (a day late;))

patty said...

Oh, what fun faces!! And I can tell you are having fun with it. I have not ever pursued faces much, but I know it is kind of fun, because they end up reflecting different personalities, as you have made clear here!
