Drawing faces

It's face off at Paper Artsy this fortnight and I felt duty bound to join in since I ducked out of the fabric challenge last time...
I don't do faces normally so this was a real challenge for me, and I was planning a whimsical feel to hide any anatomical and perspective errors. Along the line I lost the whimsy, apart from the big eyes, and there are a few odd looking bits but since I didn't model my face on a real person I won't get any complaints there...

I used watercolour pencils and crayons for the both the drawing and the colouring and I softened everything with a water brush.
I couldn't think of anything clever to stamp on/around my face and stopped tinkering as it wasn't getting any better!

Faces aren't my favourite but I'm pleased I managed to finish my drawing,
Have a crafty weekend!

Also entering the Simon Says Stamp challenge.

  3. I really enjoyed seeing your work and am proud of you for doing something you say is not your favorite! But wow- I think the face itself is really stunning! I think the colors are so vibrant and I am amazed at what you achieved with watercolour crayons and pencils. I also like how you made her looking out into the distance. The angle is perfect to make us wonder what mysteries she is pondering! This piece is thoughtful and energetic and I thought you did a wonderful job! Thanks for having the courage to "get outside of your box" and for sharing your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!

  4. Great drawing and colouring of the face, wonderful work.
