The other class members are on lesson two already.The first lesson was all about drawing faces.I used to be able to do them OK 20 plus years ago and some of those old drawings are in a post here .I've never had lessons to draw but used to draw alot when I was younger and just got better with practice.I stopped drawing when I got married and have just started to want to draw again recently.So late last year I did a basic how to draw class with Jessica Wesolek.It opened the door for me to again start drawing even though my initial steps in that class were very simple.Those attempts are here .
A friend then told me about Paulette's classes which teach you how to draw and paint faces.Now I'm learning how to draw them properly for the first time and that first lesson taught me so much.Here is the first sketch I did.Paulette suggests trying to draw faces straight on but I loved how this ladies side profile(from a magazine)looked and tried with her first.I traced the face on tracing paper first on this one.
Next I did a freehand lady sketch
This one is a freehand sketch of a young lady.I liked how her hair fell at the side.I've just fixed her eyebrows after I loaded her here as I had not realized they were lopsided till I put them on my blog LOL
The last one I did last evening and its also done freehand.Its from a magazine image and I was in awe at how symmetrical this ladies features were.I shaded areas as her true features are so fine and chiseled.
