Faces #12-28

It has been lots of faces since the last post, only missed one day, due to a trip. 

Day 12 & 13 
Facial expression (surprise) and Mona Lisa from the side.

Day 14 I missed, but got some inspiration at least:

Day 15-18
Mona Lisa with glasses, triangle boy, pyramid man and finally one with a different facial expression. 

Day 21
Almost forgot this day, did a drawing at a meeting at work. 

Day 19-20 & 22-23
Face slightly from above, drawing from an image and with open mouth, toddler and finally an 8 year old.  

Day 24
Today I got an assignment from my oldest daughter, she wanted a big painting of Harry Potter. So here is the sketch I started with. The rest I'll show in a separat post... ;-)

Day 25-28
55 year old, 80 year old, a man (finally?! 😏). And the last one I did at a meeting... 

Only two days left now... :-)

Pyjamas pants

It's time to use up the cute child fabrics I've had for a while, soon the girls will be too big for them. My oldest chose this nice one, and wanted a pair of pants made. She also helped a little bit with the cutting...

 It was nice to sew again, and I'm really happy with the end result. :-)

#8, exercise: quick sketch (30 sec)

#9, exercise: without edge lines and only different thickness in shading. 

#10, exercise: only black and white fields

#11, exercise: caricature

Washi birthday cards

Bought a nice glittery washi tape that would go great with my Hero arts stamp with spun sugar, so I thought I'd make a card of it. Well, I made two while I was at it. :-)

Also bought Chameleon pens that I wanted to try out to make gradients. For the background I used distress inks.

Face #5

This face was done with a black copic and promarkers. The bg was done with Distress marker in Worn lipstick, but since it had started to dry out I filled the gaps with a pink highlighter.

Unfortunately I also used a regular black multimarker for the thinner lines, but that bled when I used the promarkers. Therefor the smudged coloring here and there.

Just used a pencil for this one. :-)

Face #3

This was supposed to be a self-portrait, but the dimensions aren't quit right. Also this was inspired by Eleni S.'s beautiful drawings. This is done with a black copic, a warm gray Promarker and distress ink to color.

Face #2

The second was done with oil pastels and acrylic paint.

Painted faces 1

Was inspired by the February challenge of drawing one face a day, so me and the girls will try to make my own. Dont think I'll do one every day, but this is day one at least... ;-)
