Interesting Faces

I’ve been doing a little drawing practice. Several years ago, I found an interesting way to help people who are not comfortable drawing faces. I’ve used this in my classes when I teach children and they sometimes amaze themselves, even if they thought they couldn’t do it. Take a photo an cut it in half. Glue it to your paper and draw a mirror image of the other half of the face. I loved the expression on this woman’s face. She was so fun to draw. Why don’t you try it and post your results and let us see?
Here also is a necklace that I just finished that kind of goes along with the African looking theme. It is copper, jade, and recycled magazine page beads.

    Wow what a great idea for drawing, I must give that a go. The necklace is wonderful too – very African and I am sure it would feel great too.
