And this was the last day of my 'drawing faces' week.
It was fun to play with so many different materials!

For the finale I've made this face parade.
I wanted to give the faces a body again :-)

And here are three more faces in different techniques:
charcoal, collage and crayon
Thanks, Carla Sonheim for the inspiration!

faces, faces and faces :-)

This new year starts with drawing lots of faces. I couldn't resist the
101 faces class from Carla Sonheim.
I know I drew 365 faces last year, but I can't get enough of it :-)

Inkfaces: it's so nice to try all different kind of materials. It stimulates me to experiment and try out new things.

marker experiment 2

marker experiment 1

And I even tried watercolor...

These drawings I've made with my non-dominant hand.

I've made all these faces in two days. Three more days to go. it's fun!
