PPF #2 v.2

Working on my quotes/tips journal:
 My oooooh, ermmmmm, lady? girl? wise woman? voice? guide? whoever it is she has a female spirit. Where was I? Oh, yes. My "her" starts to show.
 Background details:
*tapping watered down acrylic with cloth (an old cotton T shirt).
 *water drop. Non intentional but cute.
 I´ve been practising proportions by copying faces from magazines. I wait for Tati at the school gates with my sketch pad. Today I met another mom with "I´m soooooo happy to see you! Let me have a look at your hair" Lol! She almost freaked out but she remembered I´m harmless. ;) "I can´t get hair line right", I explained showing my book in my left hand and pointing at her hair with my HB pencil in the right one.
 Some acrylics and watercolour pencil work. Still loads to go.

She's looking wonderful! I remember after taking a face drawing class I started staring at people (esp. in the airport while I was sketching on my way home from the class). They just thought I was weird- but it really helped me to see someone's face.

I think she is coming along well... It is always a challenge getting everything in the right place on faces... maybe picasso had the right idea and just ended up plonking them down because he got frustrated!!!
have a great week

Studying faces and learning to draw them is such fun, once you start you will never be bored again. That is, unless you are in a plain room with no other person's face to study.

Love how this face is coming together.

The hairline turned out great! I chuckled when I read about you asked to see the woman's hair. I also love the water bubble in the painting. It adds a bit of interest.
