Love me some faces!

So I recently signed up for Willowing's Life Book class, and by doing so I was given access to one of her previous courses---Sweet!  I chose her "Fabulous Faces" course, and it really HAS been fabulous.  I enjoy her teaching style...very down to earth and easy to follow.  I've been having a lot of fun drawing faces...front views, 3/4 views, profiles.  It's so fun watching the videos, although between her voice and the background music I generally end up falling asleep, lol!  (it takes me several days to get through a video)  My husband laughs at me every time, but I'm telling you...watching those videos is one of the most relaxing parts of my day.  I wish there were more of them!  ; )  So I wanted to share a couple of my faces.  I have a front view, a couple 3/4's and a profile.

Not great, but they make me happy.  I could pick them apart, but I won't...I'm just happy as a clam to sit with my pencils and sketchbook and practice my faces.  = )  I've started one in color (with paint, even!!) but I still need to finish the background.  I'll post that when it's finished.
Hope everyone is having a great Christmas season...and I hope that you are finding some relaxing time for yourselves!


  1. Hi Stephanie...I found you from the link at Wild Precious. I signed up for the Book of Days also. I love finding new people...precious is also new to me. I love your faces, I "love me some faces" too :)

  2. Hi Mary! Gosh, I am so used to not having comments on here (well, and the holidays have been so busy I haven't been on it much) that I didn't realize you'd posted. = ) How are you liking Book of Days? I really enjoy watching Effy's videos, although I have to admit, I haven't started my book yet...I haven't been able to find an old book like she has, but I may have to just use a regular art journal, I think. What are you using? Thanks so much for taking the time to post a comment. =D
