Let's Face It 2017

My take on an exercise in lesson one from Kara Bullock in Let's Face It 2017

I signed up for Let's Face It 2017. This is a year long art class all about painting faces/portraits. It is led and hosted by Kara Bullock but includes 19 other teachers throughout the year.  I have been busy with these lessons. I started a couple of weeks late and have been playing catch-up with the two lessons that were already published when I joined so that I can be on schedule as the new lessons come out.

Lesson One involved sketching faces from several angles and I have enjoyed working on these faces in my sketchbook.

If you are not familiar with this class or with Kara I recommend you check out her website.  The class is great so far and Kara is an excellent teacher.

So that's what I've been up to - and why I am late to the PPF party. I hope you have been creating something fun recently.  I'd love to see what you are working on.



  1. Wow Laney... I'm seriously impressed! Your faces are brilliant - well done.
    Very interesting to see the proportion lines (if that's the right terminology).
    Thanks for the link, always good to check out new tutorials.
    Enjoy your sketching :D)

  2. What a gorgeous start!! Love your faces!!

  3. Beautiful .... I especially like the profile one. I've been wondering whether or not to sign up for this class, because of some of the teachers I'd love to learn from, but I'm still working on some classes I purchased before, so I guess I'll finish those first. But I'll keep following how you get along in this class :-)

  4. Wonderful portraits, it sounds like a great class, and a great idea to really delve into portraits for such a long period.

  5. What lovely faces! It sounds like an excellent class.


I'd love to hear what you have to say
