Sketching Project: Faye

Posted on

I’ve been staring at people for several weeks now and, while I initially planned to sketch one stranger each day, I’ve realized that was an unrealistic goal.

So I’ve slowed down a bit.

Still, I feel like I’m improving.

This is real life Faye.

And this is my version of Faye:

So maybe this portrait doesn’t look anything like “real life” Faye, but I like what I did with her ear and her neck. And her lips. I’m seeing things differently, too, which is cool.

I’m feeling sorta inspired.

(And by that I mean, I feel some kind of art contest coming on. You know, with prizes and stuff, the way I used to do.)

  1. I love your sort of Romantic Period style/form Renee! A bit of abstract without too much ‘distortion’, and your colors have always popped. You have a knack for great color combinations! Well done! <3

  2. THRILLED TO SEE you loving art.

  3. I love your style, think it is showing your magical self. Wonderful job on this one, the color and the quirkiness.
