29 Faces - Faces 7 and 8

Hi, am sharing my Faces with Paint Party Friday.  Am slightly ahead because am away all day Saturday.
These are the latest Faces.  Am still trying for realistic, which is a personal challenge.


I know I said after the last male fiasco that would never draw a man again......call it a moment of weakness......

The following Faces are from in the week...........Faces 1 to 6



All the above faces need some work done to them when time allows.  So far am really enjoying the challenge of drawing a face a day......only 21 more to do..............eeek.

Thank you for dropping in, will see you either today or on Sunday, in the meantime take care of yourselves,
Hugs Annette x

The week's work looks good. I like the drawing of the nun best. Do keep on with drawing men. It's so good to see an alternative to pretty ladies, and it's good to challenge oneself to things we try to avoid.

I love that you do men .. I am so bad --- can't find into male portraits...

butterfly said...

Very glad you jumped back into the pool with the male portrait - I think it's great, and I agree with Jez about seeing something other than pretty ladies sometimes!

Exquisite feelings that express those faces!

Netty, I know what you mean with male faces... why are they so much harder LOL, I mean they have 1 mouth, 1 nose, 2 eyes & ears, YET THEY ARE SO DIFFERENT :) BTW love the bow-tied dude, very New Orleans I think :)

Lindsay Whimsy said...

Love them all so far - great work!

Woohoo! all of your faces are looking wonderful. You have a very distinct style and that's great. Looking forward to seeing the rest. I still have to catch up. Ooops!

Sandy said...

Both of your faces are wonderful and what a great job you did with that man!!! A nun? She is so pretty. A nun? Is she the protagonist from one of the books you read? Wonderful drawings Annette!

I think your faces are getting really good. How fun that you are challenging yourself. I did that with the Van Gogh series. It was all about a man. Great job on all Netty.

Your faces are amazing (love the guy with the wrinkled forehead) and each one is totally different. Not too many can achieve that difference in more than one face. Blessings, Janet PPF

Deann said...

Nettie your drawings are just wonderful...so many different great faces.

Carola Bartz said...

I think it's great that you tried a man's face again! I am not good at them either, although sometimes they just appear... Your faces of the week look good - I'm only too familiar with the challenge of making them look real. That never happens with my faces, they're just what they are.

Ariel said...

Your faces do look realistic. Great sketches.

Margik said...

Kristin said...

They are wonderful! I love the realism - and my favorite so far is face #5 - the girl with the ponytail. It is such a tough challenge - I admire you for doing it! xoxoxo

Wonderful drawings, and it's good to see them all together. I also prefer to draw women, men seem so much harder. You did a great job!
