Black top

#29faces,  paintparty friday!


'Girl in a black top', oil pastels and india ink, 12 ins square, paper, face 9



'Dreams of flight', gel pens, A5, face 8


Materials explored: gel pens for line drawing in face 8. Using Canson drawing paper. A whimsical doodle.

A combination of oil pastels with India ink in face 9.  I used wall lining paper from Poundland here. It has a slight tooth which is good for Op and its a decent thickness for taking ink washes.  Best of all it is only £1 for a roll of a few metres, which you can cut into different sizes.  Good for practice drawing.

Face 9 was inspired by a photo in the reference library on wetcanvas.com

Have a lovely weekend, whatever you decide to do.

Bye for now.

wow loving face 9. Great expression and use of lights and shade. Love also the way her hair falls so naturally. Just a great pose over all. Thanks for sharing T x

your first one shows a real tenderness-just beautiful. And it's nice to just have fun and play with whimsical doodles too! Happy PPF!

Wonderful sketches June. That first one caught some real emotion. And since shadows aren't my best skill, I love how well you captured the shadow effects. :) Erika

June both of these drawings are amazing. The first one is excellent in shading and the hair. I have OP but have a hard time using them. You however, have really mastered them. Your second sketch is so cute. Again, I love her hair. Have a nice weekend.
