I continue enjoying drawing these quirky faces…
Experimenting with different drawing materials such as a Pentel Sign Pen:
I messed up her neck a bit so I gave her a high collar. Hehe! 😉
I used same pen over watercolor for this gal – I like how this pen bleeds a little with water:
When I went to my local art supply store recently, I met Linda Schneider (LindaSchneiderArt.com) who does beautiful calligraphy. I used to do calligraphy when I was in college. Linda self-published a book using calligraphy flourishes to create women’s hair, hats, etc; called, “Designing Faces, Figures, Florals and More!”
She inspired me create the faces I’m showing you today.
I used a Pentel Pocket Brush Pen for this drawing:
What I like about this pen is the ink is permanent. It is a little harder to control than the other pen however. This pen also comes with refills.
And here is a mixed media piece that is a bit wild:
I started with a light background in watercolor, added her face with the outline using a black Micron pen, added Neocolor watersoluble crayons and more scribbles with the Pentel Sign pen.
Who knew that drawing faces could be so fun!
