I'm trying to keep up with the challenge. Some days, I get a sketch done and like it just the way it is. Other times, I want to add some color.

Day 10 Face

 This is Sophia Loren. Her beauty is exceptional. Her big cat eyes, high cheek bones and luscious lips make her a one of a kind sensuous woman. It is a pencil sketch with a small amount of colored pencil added to her lips, hair, cheeks and hat.

Day 8 & Day 9 Face

I am doing a combination of one drawing for two days. The first day was sketching and adding color to the face. The next day I used pastels to fill in the background.

May 5 Face

For today's face, I decided to put some color to Face 1. I used Primacolor colored pencils, gel pen and pastels (background).

May 4 Face

It is funny how you start off with an idea and boom.... it just goes in another direction. I am not a huge fan of big eyed girls. I appreciate the artists' paintings, but,  it just isn't my style. So, tell me, how did today's face end up this way?????

May 3rd Face

I found this incredible site, , with the most awe inspiring photos. There are face photos from all over the world. It was a hard choiceto pick one photo, but, I wanted a profile. I found this gorgeous woman. I had to attempt it.

  She was started as a pencil sketch. I wanted to add some color. I used Primacolor colored pencils. I needed it to be more vibrant. I finished her with chalk pastels, which I am beginning to love. They require you to get your fingers into your work. The mess and feel of the chalk is mesmerizing!

May 2nd Face

The second face is a pencil sketch. Primacolor colored pencils were used to add a little bit of colorto the sketch. She is kind of hard looking... different from most faces I do.

May 1st face

My first face is a pencil sketch. I took the picture of my sketch with my cell phone, so, it is not the best. I thought I would have a little fun and use the app, Pixlr-o-matic. I added a sepia tone and framed it in the second picture.
