During my resting these past few days, I have been doodling, "tangling" and have now attempted to learn how to draw faces. As I have posted before, I am not someone who can draw very well but I love the idea of incorporating faces into mixed media art. I figure if I am going to be just laying around for a couple days, I can use this time wisely and try my hand at faces. I have watched Mystele's YouTube videos of her creating mixed media artwork and finding faces in the background. Mystele has always been an inspiration to me.
Well, yesterday I found Milliande's YouTube on drawing faces and something clicked! So I got out my sketchbook and started drawing. I apologize for the pictures. I use my cell phone as my camera.
I was surprised at my first attempts to draw faces! Thank you Milliande for such a GREAT tutorial!!! She also has an Art Community for Women and a blog and an Art & Creativity Online Help Guide website you might want to check out! I just LOVE sharing these great artists, blogs, sites and tutorials. I also found her voice to be very soothing as she teaches.
Drawing these faces has given me courage to continue learning to draw more faces and maybe even trying some faces mixed into my art.
One problem though, how to keep the pencil lead that gets all over the side of my hand from rubbing off all over the paper? Any suggestions?
Weather update! It is SUNNY!!!!! The rain FINALLY stopped and there are blue skies!!!! YEAH!!!!
Have a wonderful Tuesday!
