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!

Good for anyone with or without experience. Beginners will not feel intimidated and experienced artists can always use something new to break through a block. We always learn something from each other.
I wanted to update this review to say that this was my favorite class of all that i've done on SkillShare. What a fun and relaxing class. Thank you Herma for your easy going attitude and helping me relax and enjoy the process.
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 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.
