29 Faces--#16

At this rate, I won't get done with the 29 Faces in September until December.  Alas.  I like this one a lot.


  1. I fee like this today.

    Great drawing!!

  2. your faces are so intricate I imagine they have to take days or weeks to complete! this one is great!

    please say hi to Kansas for me...

    1. Actually, they're pretty fast. Since I'm not a perfectionist, I don't spend that much time on the initial sketch, or painting on the gouache for the whites, or the black ink lines. What takes a long time are the three drying periods--for the gouache to dry before you ink it, for the ink to dry before you wash it off, and for the paper to dry after that so you can put lines on it.

      And consider Kansas duly greeted!

  3. these faces are fabulous; this one is my fave. you can feel the joy coming off the page.
