I'm going to fill up a whole sketchbook with faces. I have started to prepare the first few pages with acrylic. The book's size is: 13,3 x 13,3 cm.

On the left page (above) I have drawn a sketch of a woman after an art-photo on 
Ritva Sillanmäki's blog. This is, how it looks:

It is done very quickly, I just captured the main shadow and light with a charcoal on the acrylic background. The matte coal on the shimmering acrylic is very special. I guess it doesn't show too well on the photo.


  1. Great idea! Have you heard of the 29 faces challenge? It's a challenge where you draw or paint a face every day during a month. Starts again in February. It's great fun, might be the perfect way to fill up those pages. Here's the link in case you're interested: Love your face btw :-)

  2. Thank you for your nice words, Denthe!
    And thank you for the hint about the 29 faces challenge, I will check it out.

  3. Enjoyed seeing the face...I have also just joined a sketching class and learning things from positioning the pencil to proportion to light/shade...I will learn a lot from your faces I am sure! Thank you!

    1. Thank you, Za faran! It is so great, to take classes, learning together with others and from others as well!
