My Kids Need Reconstructive Surgery

I want to learn to draw, especially faces.  So I signed up for Carla Sonheim’s class, Faces 101.  I am drawing faces!  I love how she structures her classes.  My kids were willing models for my quick left handed with a sharpie sketch.  They are such good sports. Emma’s eyes are actually  right across from each other instead of melting off to one side  & Madeline has not been in weekly school yard fights to mangle her nose that badly. In spite of the fact that the faces I’ve drawn need serious plastic surgery, I actually like them.  They just need a bit of rainbow colors on them next…

    I’m guessing you’re right handed?! This is a fun idea and I think I’ll have to try it with my right hand (being a lefty) as I can only imagine how it would turn out!! I love your description of how your kids don’t actually look!

    I think the challenge of this piece makes it more fun.
    When you add color please share!
    Happy PPF!

    How fun to draw with your non-dominant hand! I don’t think I would do as well. I agree with above comments ~ these would be awesome with color!

  • Nicole/Beadwright January 9, 2012, 2:31 pm

    Good for you. You are off to a great start

  • kat January 12, 2012, 1:59 pm

    Wow, great work with your left hand! I can write with both hands, but I can only draw with one! 🙂
