The Documented Life Project - Week 35

Welcome to week 35 of The Documented Life Project !

August 23 - Draw, Sketch, Paint, Doodle a Face or Cut and Alter from a Magazine.

Just so you know what I really wanted to do for this challenge was ANYTHING but sketch a face. I even gathered the supplies to create a face using another medium, and then I stopped myself. I am forever saying I want to learn to draw. I want to grow as an artist when it comes to sketching, and so I chose to sketch my face.

I took the very little bit that I know about drawing a face and just did it. I didn't think about it, fret over it or take my time. I just quickly and roughly sketched out a girl and left it at that. I have admired many a face done by hundreds of artists and I alway seem to gravitate to the ones that  are less than "perfect." I like the rough look, unfinished look the best and so I left mine at that stage as well.

Because I had a story to tell about this girl, I journaled all around her. She is raw and unfinished and lovely, like the woman I fashioned her after, so  I think I will keep her.

This week's supplies: Paintbrush,  Dina Wakley acrylic paint in Magenta, a sketching pencil, Golden Fluid Acrylics in Pyrolle Orange and Diarylide Yellow, Stabilo Marks All in Graphite, Green and White and this washi tape

Enjoy this week's challenge and I can't wait to see what you create!
