I posted my 100th face on Instagram yesterday! 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! Lol! 🙂
I think the greatest lesson I learned is that it isn’t perfection that matters but PRACTICE!! Daily practice does make a difference….
Especially in finding ones “style” in art! I found I really liked creating “characters” rather than REAL people:
And yet, drawing a variety really is the best teacher! 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!
