Faces 101

This week I am taking an on-line class from Carla Sonheim.

It has been so much fun, Faces 101. We will create 101 faces by the end of the week. We have used a variety of materials and worked from different source material.

This was our first day’s project: watercolor and pencil…. painting little blobs for face and little blobs for hair then adding features. This was from our imagination.

Ink painted with eye dropper.

Day 2 found us using an eye dropper and ink to draw a face from a photo or other source material.

Today was a fun scratchy pencil drawing where we removed pigment with eraser.

We finished today with using pastels and erasers, always fun to complete the class with color.

The classes are extremely reasonable, this one is $35. If you need a little creative recreation check out Carla Sonheim’s offerings.

  1. I’m so glad you had a good time Beth. I find the ink dropper portrait evocative…is she a self portrait? A lady from the 18th century? A model? I’m very curious about what she is looking at!

  2. So glad you had a good time Beth! I find the portrait with the ink dropper intriguing–is she an 18th century lady, a self portrait, a person who sat for you??? Very evocative.
