1st - 29 Faces

Well this is my first time doing the 29 Faces challenge and this is the first face. Hopefully I am following all the rules over there.  I am not sure if this is considered too late for day one. My excuse is that I started this Feb 1st but took me too long to get to this point. Not sure if I will do anything else with this. I'll see how I feel about it. The photo reference was Ann Sheridan. Can't say it looked too much like the photo. I think the right eye is off but not sure how to correct it. Oh well, this is my level of portrait sketching.

  5. We're all at different levels here. Don't worry about that, just enjoy practicing and sharing. Glad you're here! She's really beautiful! I think you're following the rules just fine. The Linky and the label are the main things for us to find you and you've done that correctly.

  11. if this is you level, then I suggest you have a flair for it, Myriam. I haven't started yet as it has been too hot to do anything but breathe. Cool change this afternoon, though!
    Love it!

    1. Thanks Vicki. So sweet of you. It was hot for us for a while too and tricked all the trees and plants. Now it's a lot cooler and there's actually a few drops of rain making the cars look even dirtier.

    1. Thanks Lynda. Yeah I am working on it but a bit slow. So don't think I will have something everyday.
