PaperArtsy Faces Challenge

I have always been fascinated with drawing faces and trying new ways and mediums. PaperArtsy has a faces challenge and has posted some great links to artist that have their own one of a kind style. I have always been drawn to the way Jane Davenport paints faces and would love to try her style one day, But to day I am working with pastels on black card stock paper, and since it is so close to Halloween, here is my face.

Needing Spring

It is about this time of year that I start thinking of spring and the warm weather. So when it keeps getting colder and snowing it feels like winter will never end, and when I saw these emus expression I had to do a journal page using them.

Snow Day Drawing

On Monday I had a snow day. Had to stay home so I took advantage of this by turning it into a Art Day! This is one of the sketches I finished of my son Mike. I used a 4B pencil and some white charcoal.

Trying to sketch more.

I read and hear from artist that you have to sketch every day to improve your skill. I find it very hard to do every day. After you come home from work and do the house work I just want to relax . I have to be in the right mood to create. So this is my first drawing of the year, this is my son Matt.
I am going to try to draw people I know. I think it will be easier to see any mistakes this way.
