This week I decided to try doing faces in oil pastels. They are an interesting medium to work in. You can blend like paint so that is fun. Not sure that I quite have the hang of it, but there is a lot about them that I like - except the messiness of course!
I am still trying for the 29 Faces in February challenge to explore not only a diversity of media (though all in my "Faces" journal) but also of faces - men, women, children and different ages and races.
#8 - I think my favourite this week though this boy looked even younger in the photo
#10 - Tried to do a "Black and White" (and shades of grey)
#11 - messed up her eyes and mouth - oh well...
#14 - For Valentine's Day - a heart shaped face
There is definitely a resemblance of my faces to all of the photos I used as inspiration, though I have yet to feel I captured a face perfectly. Sometimes though I think it is the imperfections that give these character... ;)
Hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's Day! See you over the weekend.
