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!

  15. What a beautiful painting of Sarah, full of such mother-love. The colours are gorgeous. A happy painting showing her joy.
    And exquisite the way you have painted Eve surrounded by all the lovely flowers of Paradise.
