30 Day Doodle Challenge - Week 1 Results

Have you seen this challenge?  I found it over on Pinterest.  This 30 day doodle challenge was created by Cate Edwards.  Click her name to visit her flickr page and see her amazing works.


I'm a week in and I wanted to share my progress.  Last month's challenge didn't go as well as I hoped but this month I have a weekly plan and I'm sticking to it.  I know I have at least 20 min to sketch so I turn off the TV and 20 mins quickly becomes and hour.


#1 - The drawing took me a lot longer than 20 mins because I used my large newsprint pad.  


#2 - I had fun with the steam.  I wasn't even sure how to draw it but the more I experimented the closer I got to this organic shape.



#3 - This girl is based off of a Picasso drawing.  


#4 - I can't say that I've ever drawn a cat in detail but I LOVE how she came out!


#5 - The cubes are a good way to warm up if you haven't drawn in a while.



#6 - Seashell from summer vacation.


#7 - Much like the cubes, the loops are good for loosening up.

 If you have done this challenge or plan to do it please let me know in the comments.

29 Faces Day 20 - Slow and Steady

Slow and steady wins the race.  I didn't think I would be working on one face for most of the month but I realized that taking short cuts was not a good look.  In college, I was never the first one done with a painting.  My nights and weekends were spent fussing over the details.  There is about 20 layers of paint on her face!  But it's all good.  I'm still going to tweak her lips, ears, shadows, and hair.


Have a great Sunday!  Click here to see my other faces.

29 Faces Day 15 - Masculine Face

I quickly brushed in the background.  This face started female but ended up more masculine.  I might change the lips before I paint...


Hello to all my new followers! Thank you so much for your positive feedback on my last few faces.  I plan to continue with my drawings after September is over.

29 Faces Day 8 - Pretty In Pink

Face #3 is underway.  I quickly blocked in the background.  I'm not sure if it will stay like this but I do love the pink and orange.


Have a great Tuesday!  Click here to see more of my work.
