About This Class
Always wanted to draw a face and feeling insecure about it? I will show you how you can draw and paint a simple and interesting face. It is so much fun to make your own character!
You learn in this mixed media project how to draw a simple face and a hint of a body with a waterproof marker. I teach you how to use gesso for interesting structure. The fun part is to color the face with watercolor. I teach you how to make a skin color. How to use watercolor, which is easy and how you can use colors to give the face character.
And you finish the project by choosing a nice suitable shirt for yourself made character and by adding some features if you want.
Please join the fun!

Herma is a natural at teaching how to be more at ease drawing faces. I have seen two of her videos and they are excellent!
I learned some new techniques from Herma's class. I highly recommend it to everyone interested in painting unique faces.
Jane of all trades
I love drawing and painting with joy and happiness like a child . No perfection just enjoying shapes and colors and especially faces. I love faces! I love people and I love their stories. I really like to read biographies. I'm also a therapist and very interested in the lives of people. I love to translate that in a painting.
