I'm doing this!
Feb 1, Day 1
Many bloggers know of the 29 Faces Challenge which started last Feb, a leap year. The challenge is to draw or paint, or whatever... a face a day for the month of Feb. Well the challenge took off and I think it is now in it's fourth round. I've never joined in, until now. On a whim, I decided to participate and my goal is simply practice and to help find my style a bit more. I will challenge myself to some profiles and such as well.
This is my face from yesterday, Feb 1, Day 1.
Now, I get responses often about my faces being so sad. Don't you worry about me. I am really drawn to sad faces, and also find myself painting my characters a bit dark, but not always! I don't really know why. I suppose we are always looking to let out our inner sadness, and I feel there is always more of a story to be heard. I do have a tendency to get a little darker, a little deeper, but that's just me, so there you go!
Don't think I can blog these everyday, and I'm soon off on a trip to NY, so I'll do my best. I plan on pencil sketching my faces while in the city.
