29 Faces

I have seen the 29 Faces challenge from Ayala Art on several different blogs and thought, "What a great idea. I should join in. Challenge myself to create  29 faces in May." I then talked myself out of it because I didn't think I had the  time. Valid excuse, right? Well, of course. But, I DO have time. The last couple of days I have been finding little bits of time that were not there before to sketch and paint some faces. SO...
even though I am late to the party, 
I am joining in. :) 

Here are my first four faces. I will be back tomorrow with four more, 
and then I will be caught up. :)

Face #1
Instagram pic of sketch in my journal. I love her glamorous eyelashes. :)

Face #2

I drew & shaded this face in my idea journal that I keep with me - 
just a plain old composition book.

Face #3
Quirky face sketched with my left hand! With my right hand I traced her 
with black pen, added flowers & painted using watercolors. 
I need to remind myself to relax and "be free!"

Face #4
This is a WIP on some manilla tags I had laying around. 
She still needs some more shading. 
I am using white acrylic & watercolor crayons.

I will be back with more faces tomorrow (I know! What's going on here? Two days in a row!) In the meantime, pop on over and see all the faces being created. Well, and you could join in...so I am not the only one so late! :)


  1. So glad you decided to join! You have some great faces here and I can't wait to see the rest of them :0)

  2. So glad you joined in too... your faces are beautiful... and I especially love the second one on the composition paper... she is darling... and sweet tag too... can't wait to see more...

  3. Wow - quick catch up! Nice work! Stopping by from 29 Faces.

  4. First thing, my attention was caught when you mentioned Ayala. Ayala is a well known business district in my country. We even have the Ayala museum in the area.

    I can't wait to see all the 29 faces you will be working. I'm however curious, do they represent or at least were inspired by someone? I would love to hear the story behind each face too. Enjoy the challenge!

  5. Oh Jen...loving your faces, especially the gal in your idea journal. Can't wait to see some more! Have Fun!

  7. Gorgeous faces! I'm glad you talked yourself back in. :)

  8. Your faces are so fun, glad you decided to join. Don't feel like you're late, I have noticed everyday some one joins in.
