Drawing faces.....

A while ago I started doing faces; at first mixed media faces, then I tried something Santoro like face, and now I used a photograph to draw a face. I used soft pastel crayons for the face, for the background I used Pearlescent Pan pastel in blue and the shirt with Pearlescent Pan Pastel in Red. The flower I fussy cut out of the photograph but it was very hard compared to the soft drawing, so I decided to cover it with gesso to  tone it down and then used the same blue Pan Pastel of the background to make the colour match better.
After I coloured the background with my Pan Pastel I fixated and then stamped with a script stamp and Versamark and used the same colour Pan Pastel over it.
The only thing I am not really happy with, are the eyelashes; I did them with a fineliner, but I find it wasn't fine enough, so for me the lashes stand out too much. Of course there is nothing I can do about it; can't cover them up, so this is it. Next time I will do it differently.
Anyway, this is my first realistic face, so I'm quite happy with it. Hope you like it to. Hugs Frea

  13. You are so talented. And don't worry about the eyelashes - I think they are gorgeous and it looks like they have mascara on. The script in the background is perfect. Thanks for joining our Anything Goes Challenge this week at DoubleClick Skittles.

  15. There is nothing wrong with how you did the eyelashes. I would do more, try pencil first and do it like she has makeup on. Just an idea, it sure is beautiful.
