Mixed Media Exercise: Faces Continued

Okay ... I took everyone's advice and kept on going. What a difference a couple of hours make! Sharon's technique for building the face is wonderful. I was so excited to see my little face coming together. Free Image Hosting at www.picturetrail.com

I'm not sure about the shadow placement and I feel as if the nose can be a lot more defined .. but so far, so good. Also, the little valley above the lip - I've always hated painting those, LOL, so I'm still working on that.

So far, so good though .. thanks to all for the encouragement!!

  2. She is going to be a beauty. You can pop her nose out with a little strategically placed highlight or light value of paint.

  5. You've done a great job with the face Keni! I think the shading around the nose looks great. She has a very thoughtful expression. Keep looking past all the "mistakes" you think are there. It's so easy to get bogged down in the little details - but if you keep the big picture in mind & move forward - it usually ends up looking great! Thanks for sharing your journey.
