Working on my faces and my Faces Journal.

So I have been trying to work on making faces that I see others make, and I love so much.  Faces with more character and personality.  Not pretty, but interesting.  But every time I try, it just turns out like all the other faces I make. I don’t think my muse wants to create those types of faces.  At least not right now.  After all I haven’t been doing faces for very long.  Here, I’ll share my first face with you.  I did this on February 19, 2013.

I didn’t have very good glues to past her down in my Art Journal so she is very wavy.  And it isn’t that the picture is blurry…she really doesn’t have much of a nose.  I think I like her hair though.  LOL

This is my latest post to 29 Faces in 30 Days.  You have seen this one before in my August 27th blog post.  I made a background for her and added her to my Faces Journal.

Hopefully you can see some improvement.

Then I was watching a video on u tube by Pam Carriker on face making using the stencil she has made and has for sell.  She was saying that she feels you should perfect drawing a realistic face before you start drawing a cutesy face or a stylized face.  Hmmm I felt like she was talking to me. So I have decided, for now, that is what I am going to do, continue to work on learning to draw and paint a more realistic face.

My 29 Faces Journal is made with loose papers that I am going to bind into a journal.  Have any of you got any suggestions on how I can do this?  I know I can use rings to bind it, but do you know of any other way?

    They are both lovely, each on their own terms! It’s fun to glance back and see our progress, to honor those first brave steps, and the evolution. I’m looking forward to seeing more!
