Sunday Sketches

I have been doing lots of sketching lately actually more than painting. And I seem to be very drawn to sketching pretty girl faces. This one especially I feel a connection to and I wonder what her story is. The faces always look familiar to me. Maybe they are each a part of me.

Since having learned Jane Davenport's face sketching technique I am creating even more faces. I find it an easy way to get started and I love that. Although I would like to add color to these faces for right now I am enjoying them in just graphite.

I am sharing this today for Sunday Sketches. Stop by the lovely Sophia's blog and see all the beautiful work being shared this week!

  12. The sketch is absolutely beautiful. I am looking up Jane Davenport. I took the face painting from Bonnie McCaffrey for quilting. She's excellent for fabric sketching/painting. She just came back from UK quilt festival with fabulous video. Blessings, Janet
