Faces 17 - 24 for 29 Faces

Hi, due to lack of time for blogging this week, am showing all the faces have completed since Sunday for the 29 Faces and am sharing them with Paint Party Friday.


Painted in Watercolours and Gold Pen, with a digital background.


The Face on the left is done with Graphite Pencils and Faber Castell's Coloured Pencils (another first for me using Coloured Pencils)  the others are Graphite Pencils.


The above are done with Graphite Pencils

Wowee only 5 more Faces to go; to be honest I never thought would get this far so am feeling pretty pleased with myself and its taught me not to be such a scaredy cat about Art Challenges.

Thank you so much for supporting me here and also on Facebook, your encouragement has kept me going.

Wishing you a great weekend and be happy.  Hugs Annette xx

WOO HOO, just found out I'm the featured Artist this week at Paint Party Friday, such an honour.

Sandy said...

you should feel proud of yourself! Your faces are wonderful Annette. Valerie really hit the nail on the head when she said your faces are varied. And they are - many different people who are walking through your sketching papers right now.
New furniture - how exciting and to think your husband is helping spring clean. Wow! Didn't you also say he makes bread? Do you lend him out?

Well done Annette! A good variety of faces, your much braver than I am. Faces have never been something I could draw very well.

Thanks for the visit, the lettering on my J52 page is all alphabet stickers, trying to use up some old stash. LOL

Faye said...

Netty, each one has a different look and each one is so pretty and fascinating in its own way. I love the one in colors. She has such a regal look. I don't think I've ever done anything in graphite pencil (except the normal #2 wooden pencil) but you have done exceptional work. I especially like the first one on the left. Very nice.

Sorry it took me so long to get here Netty. PC troubles.

Jez said...

These faces are all wonderful, and you have done so many. I think your use of the coloured pencils is beautifully done, and you are so good with graphite pencils. Do I recognise Anne Boleyn in one of the drawings - it's good and very like her (not that I knew her personally of course!).
Your watercolour/gold pen painting is also one of my favourites.
Sorry to be late commenting - and I do value your lovely comments on my posts so much Netty, thank you.

Kim said...

Wow, so much variety. These are wonderful. I especially love the larger coloured one at the top. Happy SS

bellefrogworks said...

Beautiful portraits - each and everyone of them. Love all the colors in the first one.

JKW said...

Love the faces. I am so glad you are trying the color pencils, I love to use them. Blessings, Janet PPF
