Faces 12 - 15 for 29 Faces

Wow am at half way point.............woo hoo


and here she is before I sprayed her with homemade inks and extra colours



Then some
 Graphite sketches

Thank you for following me on my journey of faces, the benefit for me has been whereas it took me at least a couple of hours to sketch and lots of rubbing out, it now takes about half an hour and very little rubbing out, so lots of pluses.  Am joining this with Paint Party Friday.

Take care of yourselves and have a great week and weekend.  Hugs Annette x

Oh how cool - all the spritzed colours for the wild hair are fabulous around that beautiful face. Love the one in the middle of the sketches too... she's clearly the sparky secretary to the murdered man in an Agatha Christie mystery!!

Annette said...

Hi girl, aren't you enjoying these? I am looking at them. Portraits are at first scary but can tell you are getting comfortable with them. Great job my dear. Hope you are not getting all the rains I am hearing about . xoxoxo

Sandy said...

Your first face is definitely my favorite Annette - so magical! She really does have a touch of magic to her. I also love the middle face - I believe it is - she looks like she walked straight out of the 40's. Hope all is well with you and your husband Sugar.

I tried your technique on my red haired girl, Netty, only I didn't spray. I used the brush. I couldn't remember where I had seen it or I would have given you credit.

Hi Netty, Your face is beautiful. Leaving her face free of the spray inks gives her a lovely delicate appeal. I like you sketching as well. Have a grand week.
