PAINT PARTY FRIDAY FEB 3

Hi Everyone!

Here it is time for Paint Party Friday.   I got so hooked on 29 Faces,  that I am still drawing faces every evening. However, I  wanted more realistic features so I am taking my time and getting lines and shading done better. 
A huge thanks to Eva and Kristen for hosting PPF


This second drawing was created by my DH. I really love this critter and had to share it. 
There is quite a lot of detail.

I know it is early but wishing all of you a happy Weekend.

  18. Your face looks great. I am still struggling with getting the shadows right. Somehow they almost always look a bit off. I need to study more faces I guess :)

  19. I love your face AND the critter! I am taking a couple of drawing classes online and I have the hardest time with them. To draw well takes time. And I am sooooo impatient! But I'm determined to stick with it. Yours looks wonderful!! xoxo Silke
