Never was much for Drawing

Doodling was my thing when I was in school. I would fill the inside covers of every notebook I could with doodles and lettering, but when it came to art class I was terrified to even attempt to draw anything.  Drawing a face or flower was something I told myself that I just could not do and out of the question. From time to time, I try to art journal and even sometimes manage to get the acrylic paints out and put paint to canvas, but I've had 2 canvases sitting in my studio here that are both only partially done and have been that way for more than a year now. 

I remember watching a You Tube video recently with Janes Davenport and loved her style and the fascinating faces she created. I was so thrilled when I stumbled on a copy of her Drawing and Painting beautiful Faces at JoAnn yesterday that I just had to get it!  I have to say that I'm very pleased with the few little drawings that I've done so far . . . 

It amazes me that each drawing started with the same simple oval shape but how each one is so unique.  I'm definitely looking forward to drawing more beautiful Faces with Jane.

Thanks for stoppping by!

Until next time,
