Show your Face


Hello everyone,


Today I'd like to highlight the absolute brilliant idea going on over at Kim Dellow's Art it Friday - Show your Face blog as for a few weeks now, she's been encouraging people to create their own artwork of faces. No stamps, digs or stencils just purely hand drawn faces.

Now, I'm passionate about drawing and I really believe EVERYONE can do it, there is no right or wrong,if you are happy with it that's all that matters. Don't get me wrong, I love my stamps too but sometimes we don't always have the right stamp to fit what we want to create do we?

Here's my drawing that I am linking up today, all hand drawn and coloured using Faber Castell Polychromos and then gone over with a black 01 Micron pen. There is one stamp in there, buried in her hair as I just love Dina Wakley's scribbly writing stamp :)








So grab a pencil and paper and get drawing, it doesn't take long but the satisfaction is wonderful :)

Hope you like it

  7. Your drawn face is from a true drawing artist. She is gorgeous and has personality and intent. I must disagree with that we can all draw. I cannot. I know this because I am NEVER happy with a face I have drawn. So, isn't it wonderful that I can buy face stamps from artists that truly can draw them.

  15. You are a woman after my own heart Donna! I totally agree that we can all draw, although it has taken me time to get there as I was lacking in confidence and that is exactly why I started the link up. Try and encourage everyone to have a go and find confidence in doing! Thank you so much for linking to Art It Friday - Show Your Face, I love your face and wonderful hair, and thank you for the fabulous shout out too. Kx
