Please take a look!

Thanks everybody for liking my class. It helps a lot to keep it going! 

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.

You need:
Watercolor paper and sketch paper. (a simple sketchbook will do)

A waterproof black thin marker. (potential a pencil)

Watercolor (tube's or boxes)

A round brush with a thin top. Nr 8 or 10

a cloth

White gesso

Some printed paper

a piece of tracing paper

Glue. (gel medium matt or a glue stick)

white marker or pencil
