100 Faces in 100 Days

There is a wonderful new Facebook Group called "100 Faces in 100 Days" that I just heard about today.  Many of us have taken Dina Wakley's class called Making Faces.  I blogged about it last year when I took it and even shared not only the faces I drew but also faces drawn by many of the students in the class who were generous enough to let me take photos and publish them here.  I was amazed at the talented artists in our class!

To be completely honest drawing faces is not something I have ever been really good at.  In fact many years ago my art teacher in school suggested I was so bad that I might want to drop the class or transfer to something else.  I explained to him that that was why I was there.  He, being a TEACH-er was supposed to TEACH me how to do art.  Needless to say I stayed in the class but never learned how to draw anything.  I learned more in Dina's class in one day than I did the entire course of that year.  I still may not be a portrait artist but I really enjoy the faces I do draw.  So, of course, I requested to join the 100 Faces group and I will draw that many between now and September 5th.  I thought maybe once a week I would share a face or two that I have done that week.  That will keep me on track and focused which is really the main reason why I started blogging to begin with.

Check out the FB Group if you have an interest.  You can ask to join, you do not have to post anything unless you choose to do so.  Here's my face for today, I drew it on a piece of water color paper that I used for wiping off paint brushes and stamping off ink.  She kind of looks like my sister, Karen, when she was about seventeen years old.
