Grace Mendez Art Journal Face

Art Journal Faces

I make a lot of faces of women in my art journal.

It’s one of my favorite things to do in a journal.

I’ve noticed most of the faces are about the same. They are looking straight ahead and have crazy hair or flowers for hair.

As you can see, once in a while, I change them up. I borrowed Ed Emberley’s Drawing Book of Faces¬†from the public library and was inspired to make a more whimsical face with a crown and eyelashes.¬†Grace Mendez Art Journal Faces

All four of these art journal faces are made with watercolor, some with a little bit of pencil and marker.

You don’t need a lot of fancy art supplies to be creative.

I bought a used, vintage looking set of the Pelikan watercolors at a rummage sale for $3.00.

Do you have a favorite subject that you like to draw or paint?

What is your easy-to-go-to subject? Do you ever get bored by making the same thing over and over?
