100 Days Of Drawing Faces

I posted my 100th face on Instagram yesterday! Β WHOOT!  😊 I accomplished my goal of drawing 100 faces in a little over 100 days… Phew!!

Maybe some of you recall my first face I posted on April 4th – it was a quick sketch in one continuous line:

100 days is A LOT especially when I am working full-time… (What was I thinking?!) and yet having limited time helped me to accomplish my goal because I didn’t have time to fuss over it.

I didn’t post everything I did like this one:

I would have liked to have more time to do more like this one, where I mixed collage and acrylics:

But I enjoyed trying a variety of art mediums:

Sprinkled with a little humor:

I think this one is one of my favorites – Picasso style:

And this one I did in watercolor with drips for hair:

I found I could draw more realistic looking faces and even my own – or at least my better half! Β Lol! πŸ™‚

I think the greatest lesson I learned is that it isn’t perfection that matters but PRACTICE!! Β Daily practice does make a difference….

Especially in finding ones “style” in art! Β I found I really liked creating “characters” rather than REAL people:

And yet, drawing a variety really is the best teacher! Β Here is my 100th face:

I’m sure it won’t be my last…

Yet, let’s FACE it, I need a little break from drawing faces!

Cheers! πŸ™‚
