I’ve been wanting to learn how to draw faces for some time now. I’ve watched numerous YouTube videos and didn’t really like the results I was getting. Then I heard about Willowing,ning. Check out her site here. Tamara is an amazing artist and person and her free class called “Art, heart & Healing” will take you on a step by step process on how to draw a face. In order to get to her list of classes you have to sign up to her page and then there’ll be a tab called Free Classes where you’ll find it. This is what I was able to draw last night and although I do have room for improvement, I was sooooo pleased with the results!!
As always when I try something new, I’m always reluctant to try it in my big Art Journal and so I grabbed a small handmade note-book I put together with some water-color paper in it that I take along with me to doodle or water paint in. I have to practice more with shading in and light sources, but I can honestly say I love her as my first attempt!! Tamara truly is amazing and I encourage you to try along with her as well. Here’s a couple close-ups of her face…..I even included my word of the year under her eye as Tamara suggested.
I don’t have a large selection of water-color crayons and didn’t have the colors she used…..but I made do with what I had and am pleased. So, now I want to grab my big journal and play with this on a larger scale…..YIKES!!
As always, thanks so much for taking the time to pop in on me. I do really appreciate it!
