Little Faces in Calendar Book and on small round deckled watercolor paper

Hello!

Really enjoyed the class. It's great to see how others envision and teach "how to draw a face"

Did these faces in my calendar/sketchbook. Used a metallic gold and silver watercolor to start out. In the end I added colored pencil. I have others that are only watercolor and will upload at a later time.

Thank you for an excellent class!

This is how most of them start out. Water + pigment to see what wants to reveal itself.

Wanted to get the angle of the image so it was understood that a metallic under-layer was applied. Then colored pencils.

I like drawing the face and experiment with the subtleties of mood and reflection. These might look great as very large pieces on Fabriano Printmaking paper..... I might experiment with that. Especially enjoy this watercolor metallic.

We have two eyes, nose and mouth yet there are so many combinations so that each face looks unique, distinct and different.
