Anyway, I am quite enjoying the class so far. Katie has a new lesson every day of the week (except weekends) and always with a video, in which she demonstrates everything. It's awesome!
This week we had to draw a couple of faces with our non-dominant hand - life drawing faces isn't hard enough, right?
And it was so good! So freeing! SO fun! Not worrying about whether or not it looks realistic, if the eyes are the same size or if the nose is too big...whatever! Just do it! Aaaahhhh!
|Originally drawn with my left hand, then colored with pastels and gesso.|
|This one was first transferred onto another paper using gel medium, and then colored.|
Yeah, they may not be the most beautiful women you've ever seen, but you have no idea how scary the idea of drawing a human face has always been for me. At least one that doesn't look like a cartoon!
All I know is I never looked forward for a Monday before! Can't wait to see what Katie has for us this week!
I'll keep you posted!
