Sunday Sketches and Faces #15 and #16

Since I have been sketching faces, I finally have something with which to join in Sunday Sketches with Blue Chair Diary

These two faces are from a mini-challenge that Ileana gave on her blog - to try to capture Elizabeth Taylor. Here are my two tries (and the photo inspiration).

#15 - pastels

#16 - Paint pens

Photo inspiration

Didn't quite get her - but it was fun to try! I'm looking forward to visiting everyone over the next few days! 

Have a great week.

  1. You captured something of her I think in the second one. You#ve got her stare in both. Brilliant job, I find it so hard (impossible) to draw real faces. :)

  10. Hi Eva, I agree with Arnoldo in that you captured her spirit in the second piece (its all in the eyes, that's usually the first place I start when doing a portrait). Thanks for visiting my blog and do keep at your portraiture, cheers :)

  11. Lovely work. You wouldn't want it to be an exact copy. I like seeing your own interpretation.
