Face Sketch


It's been some time since I've practiced a simple face, so I grabbed a crappy crappy pencil, seriously in need of sharpening, and sketched this little cutie.  My plan is always to paint, but I get so scared sometimes I'll ruin this cute little face.  Boo.  what to do???

and I was about to link up to Sunday Sketches, but I missed the linky by two minutes!  Boo.

  1. Be brave, go for it! Maybe photograph the drawing first and then you will have both when done painting! You can do this!!! And "that" too. ;-)

  5. yes so cute! i have felt that fear before. what you can do is scan this drawing and then print it lightly on nice art paper then paint that one. Keep the original pure. that is one idea. Or you could copy it on tracing paper and copy it on to another page to paint. have fun!

  10. Hi Daniele! I feel the same way about putting paint on my drawings, so I usually make several copies, and then if I make a mistake it's no big deal to just crumple it up, toss it in the trash, and begin anew with the next copy (I make a lot of mistakes!). As I'm not too great at drawing, particularly faces (particularly noses!), I know I need to practice more often, and your example here has inspired me to do so!:-)

  12. This is super fab! Great face! I do the same is Jenny, when I have a face that I like I copy it (lightening up the ink) and paint over the copy. I love your faces!
