Weekend catch-up! #29 Faces.

Faces done over the weekend for the #29faces bloghop.

'Red and green', day 3, pan pastels, card, A4

'Tilted head', day 4, graphite pencil, sketchbook, 7 by 5 ins.

'roundhead', pen, day 5,  book page, 7 by 5 ins

'The swan', day 5, pen and pan pastels, card, A4

Day 3, red and green lady, was to try out my new set of pan pastels.  I have a small set of 20 colours, and I like these pastels for monotone backgrounds, but probably prefer soft pastel sticks for blended skin tones.  

Day 4 was a pencil sketch which was loosely based on a face in a magazine for head position...I changed the features and hairstyle on my version.  It ended up looking unlike the photo in the magazine!  But that's OK as I was going for the angle of the head.

Day 5 has 2 faces:- the doodled face on a book page which may be useful for a future mixed media project, and the quick pen drawing in scribble style, which was to try out the combination of ink with pan pastels.  

That's the catch-up for this weekend.  


See you later!!

Do you use a fixative on your pastels?
