29 Faces – Expressive Figure Sketches (with faces, of course – 18, 19 and 20)

More Open Studio homework – expressive figure drawing.  These were done with charcoal, pretty quickly – I just tried to go with the flow, not for perfect.


Both were inspired by photos I saw on Pinterest.

And now, back to paperclay – here’s my face – painted –

I may go back in and slim down that crazy eyeliner.  Or not, I don’t know.  She’s not supposed to look real.  I’m not sure what I’m doing about her hair – I didn’t really give her much of a head to attach any hair, but she is a knob, after all.  I’m thinking she may get some kind of a hat – a found object kind of hat.  We’ll see.  The project got a bit derailed today because I cleaned all of the windows in the sun room – a two hour, messy messy job, and I just didn’t feel like constructing her afterwards.

Maybe tomorrow.

    Hi Wendy, thanks for the info on Open studio workshop, Sounds like an investment worthwhile. I like what you are doing , I always find charcoal difficult to control but you have got the postures spot on. Its good to just 'go with the flow' and see what happens, I think we can learn more if we dont worry about 'doing it wrong' so much. Your little paperclay face has come out really well, I love the crazy eyeliner!, and maybe she dosent need hair , or just paint some on if she is a knob. what will she be used for? I mean what will the knob be attatched to?
