A face a day

Yes! I made it! I managed to sketch a face every day for 30 days, and I am so happy! Happy because I achieved my goal, happy because I did something new in the area of sketching and drawing, going outside of my own comfort zone.

I did not make any great drawings, but I quite like some of my sketches – and they were all great fun to make. As you can see I drew them all in a sketchbook, and combining text, image, sketch – making a page layout – was an important part of this project for me.

Here are a few faces for you:


Day 15


Day 17


Day 18


Day 27


Day 28


Day 29

New challenges are at my desk – hopefully they will be as enjoyable as the great  face task!

    What a lovely post. These are great pages! And interesting to see how your drawing got bolder and more confident and even more joyful as the month wore on. Terrific!

      Dear Cynthia, you are much to kind! But I do find a lot of joy in sketching these days, and finding joy is such a wonderful thing!

    Congratulations! I don’t set challenges like that, maybe I should. In any case, your work is full of humor and freshness and life – wonderful.

      Thank you! I find setting challenges useful … sometimes.
