29 Faces

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.

  9. this is beautiful and i think there is something more compelling about a sad or wistful face than a happy smiling one. more of a story to tell. glad you're joining in-me too for the first time! enjoy your trip to NY-very envious!
