Ink Faces

Someone asked about “Faces 101.”  It is part of Carla Sonheim’s Dog Days of Summer, online art camp for kids and adults.  It’s a three week workshop….last week was “Imaginary Creatures” and this week is “Faces 101.”  Next week will be “Junk Mail Artist’s Book.”  I have some creatures partially completed but I will probably wait to finish them after next week.  I’m trying to keep up with this week’s assignments.  I’m having the most fun doing faces this week.  If you want fast paced lessons…Carla keeps one moving along 🙂  Here are some ink drawings that I made yesterday. I didn’t have any black ink so I had to use some India inks and Liquitex inks:

    I like that you didn’t use just plain black ink. The colors look great. And you’re doing some men’s faces, too. I’ve always had trouble with doing them.

    The colors DO look great. I think faces are intimidating, and I like the simplicity and confidence of your drawings.

    I’ve always found working with ink a bit intimidating, but these really do look wonderful, Mary! Love the ‘flow’ in your mark-making…

    These are great!!! Love the guy’s faces! I liked the ink dropper technique so much that I used it on my latest painting (not on the face). So much fun…
