Let's Face It 2017 Week 3


Let's Face IT is proving to be quite an inspiring course.
This is my version of a great lesson from Kara Bullock. Our focus is on values for several weeks, thus the black and white.  I love Kara's technique and really want to attempt this again - need more practice! This was also my first time to paint on a wood cradle board and I liked working on that surface.


I got a better likeness to the reference photo in this sketch than I achieved in the painting.  But so far this is a fantastic learning experience!

Hope you have all had a great week! And I would love to see what you have been working on.  :)
