PPF: Faces in the World

I just finished participating in a really terrific art round robin, hosted by Martha of Ayala Art called "Faces in the World." She arranged those of us who signed up into groups of three. We each started a face on a 4x6 piece of paper and then sent it to another member of the group, who added to the face and then sent it to the third member, who completed the face and sent it home!  The face above is the one I completed and which started out looking like this:
And which arrived to me looking like this:
As for my face, I sent this water color blob face out:
And she transformed:
Finally, the third face in the group started with this:
I added this:
And she eventually became this:
By the way, this face had a sister, who started out as a mirror image of the pencil sketch, and she ended up looking like this:
Thanks Martha for hosting this really fun swap. And thanks to Beth and Joy, my very talented team mates!
I'm sharing all this loveliness with Paint Party Friday! Go check out more painterly goodness at this link.

This challenge is very interesting. Unfortunately I knew about it only last week.
All the faces are unique and it is so interesting to see the 3 steps that has led to the completion of these faces.
Happy PPF
