I have a confession to make…
I’ve always wanted to be able to draw pretty faces ever since I was a young girl… BUT my faces always looked much like this drawing (eyes closed):
Until recently, drawing a face (or two or three!) EVERY DAY has really improved my drawing skills! PRACTICE really does makes a difference!
PLUS, learning from other artists in books, YouTube videos, online classes… thank goodness there are SOOOO many great ways to learn to draw (faces) today!
I drew this face with pencil last week and I hope to paint it with watercolor:
She is my first face that I’ve drawn that I have REALLY
liked loved!! I am a little scared to paint in watercolor as I don’t want to mess her up. I think I will scan my drawing first so I have a future reference. 🙂
My second face, I also created with pencil and used an Elegant Writer pen (with water) to create the black lines:
She reminds me of a flower, opening its petals to reveal its inner beauty – much like I hope my art does with continuous practice!
I know I have SO MUCH MORE TO LEARN but I feel like I’m starting to create some pretty faces…
Do you have a subject that YOU would like to learn how to draw better?! I hope you give it a try!! (And I’d love if you shared it with me!)
