Faces have been my latest obsession.
Most of them are done in my art journals.
Because there are not of layers and done in a watercolor style, I create them in one sitting.
I find it relaxing and fun to do.
Last year I worked on a series of women with their eyes closed called Bad Hair Day.
What helped me transition from closed eyes to open eyes was this video from Jane Davenport: The Whimsical Face.
She made the whole process fun. If you are hesitant about drawing faces, I highly recommend getting a copy of her video.
I rarely rely on stencils in my art work so the section in the video on using a face stencil was not very relevant. But I loved the rest of the information!
As you can see, I am still drawing the faces in a forward position. My next challenge is to start drawing them with their heads turned.
