29 Faces

After looking from the sidelines at the previous 29 Faces challenges, I've decided to commit to participating in 29 Faces this time around. I've never participated in a daily type of challenge before, but I'm hoping it's okay if I don't post every day, as long as I do post 29 faces.  I'm really wanting to focus on faces right now, so the timing is perfect and I can always use a good motivational push.

I need to get out of my comfort zone, which is definitely drawing faces in pencil.  I like the control and the detail and subtle shading I can get with pencil, but I struggle when it comes to painting them, giving up that control and trying to create subtlety and depth with paint.

This first one is a pencil sketch (of course), but I'll definitely be stretching myself throughout the month!  Thank you Martha for hosting this wonderful event!



  1. She's beautiful, I love her expression. I look forward to seeing more for 29Faces!

  2. Oh Terri... so thrilled to see you on board... it is going to be a fun month I am sure... and love your first girl... she's a beauty...

  3. You're off to a beautiful start! I look forward to seeing how you stretch yourself :)


  4. Hi Terri! I'm looking forward to see more of your faces! I took a look at some of your other art-work. I like it when there is some edge on it!

  5. I just posted a comment and it went .... I don't know where ;-) So here I go again: welcome to the challenge! I love your drawing. And don't worry, you will have to get out of your comfort zone when you have to make a face every day!

  6. She's great Terri.... I love how she is looking off into the distance.

  7. Really nicely done - and good for you for stretching yourself! I'm doing a bit of that this month....but I think you are very brave to do 29 faces - best of luck!!!

  8. Oh, she is beautiful! It is awesome to find so many new people as I take on the challenge of the 29 Faces.

  9. Lovely!

    Good luck with completing 29 faces - it'd take me a month to complete 1!


  10. This is GORGEOUS! She's so pretty - I love her long hair too! Yay, I'm doing it too - although I've yet to post about it. I'll do that today (I think ;) - but I've done 3 so far :) That's exactly why I wanted to do it as well - to really stretch myself. Bravo, xoxo

  11. So glad you stopped by my blog! Where do I start in commenting on yours? WOW! LOVE the fabric album and the face using the planes is SO intriguing. Glad you decided to join the challenge too!
