29 Faces Challenge Completed & a New Painting Started...


29 Faces Shared in September All Together

I'm taking a small break from sharing the LACMA Surrealist show this Monday and sharing a grouping of my 29 faces for the 29 faces challenge.  The challenge was to share 29 faces in the month of September, and it was definitely inspiring.  I tried some poses and angles I don't usually attempt, some worked out, some didn't.  This time I shared a mix of sketches that I did specifically for the challenge and paintings that I'd done before...

I'm not sure if I'll participate in the challenge again or not or when, I'm leaning towards yes, but we'll see.  If you're interested in learning more about the challenge, the information is here:


This is the start of a painting from one of the faces I sketched for the challenge.  It is a work in progress.  At this point I just have the sketch down and some texture for the background.
