29 Faces and PPF

Unexpectedly I was away from home for 2 weeks.  I have had no internet access and no paints!  Gosh did I miss them.  However I did have my coloured pencils and a large sketch pad.  Today, I will show you two drawings for a long overdue commission and as they have faces I will count them in the 29 faces challenge!  I have some more and I will post them in the next couple of days as I am short of time today, lots to catch up on!

Faces 6, 7, 8

This is about Sarah and her joy at the arrival of Isaac S, she was in her 90’s! (Gen 21) with Ishmael looking on.

Face 9

Eve of course! Here is the nasty serpent trying to tempt her.  As you might have guessed the commission is for a series on Woman of the Bible for children.  The blank spaces afre for the text.

Have a good weekend.  Hopefully I will be back to normal production from now.

Linking to Paint Party Friday do go and visit all the other wonderful artists!

29 Faces - February 2014

I have been dithering about trying to decide whether to do 29 Faces this time round and as I missed last September I finally decided I will.  The problem is that I have a lot on this month.  So I decided I would do watercolour whimsy faces.

Face 3

However, by Face 3 I knew it wasn’t going to work as it was not enough of a challenge.  So I decided to do something that was a challenge, tonal work!  Using my Inktense pencils but ONLY one colour, allowing myself to use water to create tone.  Here is my first effort for faces 4 and 5, inspired by a photo from a magazine.
