for 29 faces



i guess you will be seeing at least 29 posts of faces for may here on my blog....if i do this i will amaze myself........the 3 faces here are drawn in ink and then watercoloured......of course, as you can see, they are on book pages.. i used my rotring ink pen....it is not waterproof and i like the effect you get when you apply water....takes some getting used to though.......i used india ink on the second girls hair with a new dip pen i just bought and it is waterproof . i wasn't happy with the hair markings.....and just getting used to the dip pen.....and the 3rd girl is weird looking...

Doing this on book pages rocks my world. Just love the interest it gives each drawing. Very nice.

And then I saw these! The top two ladies are somehow different and I realized they have a certain "smoky- charcoal- vintage- Frenchy" look to them. I know that last sentence makes no sense. What ever the particular quality is- I love it.

I love these! I cant say enough food things about the idea behind this. I use watercolors myself and just recently got a steal of a deal from DaVinci Paints. I love them and the colors are similare to the vibrancy I see in these faces. Thank you for sharing this is just a beautiful idea.
