29 Faces #22 thru #24

This weekend I've been playing with painting techniques, experimenting, on previous drawings. This is definitely an area I need to work on, painting.
The two sides done differently - made a bit of a mess.

This is actually oil paint, I bought a cheap starter set to play.  But I did it on paper, and like an idiot didn't buy anything to clean my brush with when I needed to change color - it was frustrating and doesn't even look like oil, but was a good learning experiment.  Being patient while I try to learn new things is something I struggle with!
I drew this to experiment with painting it later in the week


  1. I've been a bad friend. I've missed so much! You are so talented on so many levels - which I've probably told you before ;)
    I LOVE seeing your faces - and oil! Very cool, I've never worked with it. I love your definitions and highlights with color and I love those hot pink lips! Looking forward to seeing your newest sketch painted - she is really something with a great angle / expression. xoxo!!

  2. Terri great work!

    Interesting how you experimented with doing the sides of the face differently. Oils = scary to me.... well done for experimenting.

    I can't wait to see what you do with the last sketch of the girl... I love her downwards look and expression.

  4. Oils are totally out of my comfort zone! Well done you, your faces are fab - particularly the second girl, she looks so calm.



  5. Love all of your faces esp the one in oil!!
