The Documented Life Project

I can say without a doubt that I am going to have a problem getting through this month for the art journal pages.

August Theme
Faces, the Human Form & Characters
August 1
Art Challenge: Expressive Faces
Journal Prompt:  What I see clearly now

I don't draw faces or the human form well at all. Characters maybe. I'm sure I can wing a goofy looking cartoon character but I know I won't be satisfied with it.

Any way, here goes this is my page
I started by trying to draw a face. Or rather half a face. I kept drawing then covering it up, drawing and covering it up. Finally I said enough, splatter some paint and ink around that thing and move on.

the face is a lot better than i can do...and I do see clearly now that you are 14 days behind...i wish i could print and write like you do. mine is chicken scratch.

Ugh. I agree--that would be a tough month to participate. Faces are really hard to do right. I think you took a great stab at it.

WE think did a great job. I couldn't have come to close to doing something that well. At least you are trying and that is what counts. But it does look good. You have a great day.

Well you are doing better than all of us would - I'm intrigued by the mouth tho...Could have gone for metaphor, I guess.

I think you did a great job on the face Anne but I know how you feel, drawing figures and faces is way outside my comfort zone too.
