Dutch Design Leather, Est 2013

Final check-in for the 29 faces challenge. Though I have been practicing faces every day this month, most of them were just quick scribbles in my journal. 

As today is the 30th of september I thought I would add a quick painting in my art journal and then call it a day.

I think I learned a lot by just doing a face every day and it has been an interesting experience. I will try and keep sketching a face every day, be it in my journal, or whatever medium I have at hand =). So maybe someday I will be able to just sit somewhere and sketch people passing by…I would so love to be able to do that.
I don’t have my regular camera at the moment, so here are some shots made with my iPhone.
Here’s a collection of the faces I did in my journal.

Some are goofy and very quick.

Others are a bit more elaborate.

Often something that caught my eye at that moment.

Like a sleeping kitty… =)

Or my docters visit…

Trying different styles.
Because, well actually, I don’t have a style, I just do what I feel like at the moment. As I did tonight.

So those are my 29 Faces in 30 days and I had fun doing them. I have no clue how many I made, because I lost count at some point…
So thank you Ayala, for hosting this and inspiring me to go and do a face a day any which way I liked. I learned a lot and I enjoyed looking at what the other participants made. Though I have not been commenting much… Life has a tendancy to get in the way of those things.
Thank you for watching and I wish you a wonderful week.

  12. Lovely work! I really like your pen drawings and the way the text and faces merge together. Like you I have learned a lot from the month of faces, unfortunately the heavy workload meant I didn't make as many bloghops as I wanted so I must try and catch up!
