One Lone Pear painting

It's been a couple of weeks since I posted here. Of course it's been pretty busy to say the least. I have been practicing more of my "happy faces"   Here are a couple more ...

I've also been doodling in pencil and playing with the acrylic paints as well. Just finished up a little painting of one lone pear. 

Until next time. Happy creating!

A Few More beautiful Faces

Hope everyone had a fun 4th of July!  I certainly did with lots of food and fireworks in the company of family and friends.

Anyway, here's a couple of other faces I was experimenting with the other day. I'm really looking forward to having another go at it again today!

My favorite one is the "Blondie" in the second photo above.  I'm still amazed at how different each one turns out just by changing up the color scheme and varying the eyes, nose and lips ever so slightly.  Each lady has a personality all her own.

Until next time, Happy Blogging!

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,
