Let's Face It 2016

Just thought I would share some portrait work I've been doing with an online class called
"Let's Face It 2016" it's run by Kara Bullock you can find it here
There is a new lesson every week by a different instructor and the class is suitable for you no matter where you are at in your journey. 

I've done some portrait work in graphite with 3 views - front facing, 3/4 and profile. It is really amazing to see my growth. I do not draw and paint as much as I would and you really need to be doing all the time to practice. Practice makes all the difference. :)

Week 3

Week 11

Week 19

I have also done two painting lessons:

Week 4 - lesson with Petra Stein
(LOVED this lesson)

Week 6- lesson with Karine Bosse

(This lesson was a huge challenge and I need to do it again. It is on wood - I've never painted a portrait on wood before and also used watercolors, absorbant ground and oil pastels. The lesson called for a mixed media background but I did not like mine at all. I tend not to line this type of background on my portrait work. I ended up covering it up and using acrylics) I really dislike this painting but we learn from every piece we work on.
