For the faces in the journal, I'm using techniques from a face-drawing class by Dina Wakley. They're very stylized and messy, but I'm enjoying learning the technique. Each page also includes the lesson learned on that day. I'm going to continue to work on the journal this summer. Hopefully I'll get it done before the next round of LSNE starts!
Speaking of faces, I also participate in face-drawing creative projects hosted by Ayala Art. Each June, she runs one featuring men (see mine here) and occasionally hosts one called 29 faces. Here's the post announcing the one for this year. I won't be participating this year, but I have been participating in her Faces in the World Swap, where groups of three people work in sequence to complete a finished face. For example, I recently sent this out:
And this is what it became:
And when I received this recently:
This is a really fun project. I just sent these to starters out for the next round:
I'll let you know how they turn out when they return home.
