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 2

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.

  8. I know it is difficult Sharon when life is busy, I too wondered if I really had time this month, but already I'm enjoying the small amount of time I can devote to the challenge. Your watercolours are fresh and lively, they have a abstract feel which I like, very glad you have joined the challenge this time round.

  16. Your Whimsy ladies are fun and enjoyable, and as always your use of colour brings everything alive. Face No 3 is my favourite with its vibrant colouring, and I can hear her saying - 'Who are you calling Whimsy!'
