Response to Face Tutorial

I hate drawing faces. I would love to draw faces without thinking much about them. So I watched this tutorial and it reminded me of some lessons I learned many years ago (elementary school art.)

I am showing you just the face bases I made. I will add hair later. This is the first use of the little book I made the other day.

I will show the finished work tomorrow. I really should be working on reading lessons today.

I love how you are challenging yourself Annemarie in areas you are not comfortable.
That is what creativity is all about.

Hey I noticed your note about losing the music link that I can hear.
Well if you want to add Mixpod or Flashwidgetz I can hear the music on those sites :-)

Those darn reading lessons.... That's what I need to be doing, too. But for now, I'm having fun looking at your drawings. I've got to go to your last post now, so I can check out the "highly prized" sketches.

It's very difficult to sketch faces... I haven't done it in a long time! I love what I see here... makes me think that maybe I should try sketching again myself. YOu did great!!!

Love your faces Annemarie, like Marit said; it's so hard to draw faces. Fantastic!

I am very left-brain dominant in art. I found reading "Drawing on the right side of the brain" (see: ) helpful. I read it in Gr 7 or 8 & was able to draw objects upside down (so I focus on lines) but have never really mastered drawing items right-side up. This is one reason why I focussed on folkart painting because I don't need to worry about drawing lines; I just trace most of them & do ad hoc with details.
