5 of 29 faces

Here come some sketches, four in my sketchbook using pencil, charcoal, pastels and stuff and one on cardboard sized 70 x 100 cm. The last sketch is worked in acrylic.

It was actually really difficult for me to get her right, I didn't get her right!!! But I should learn from the process. And the acrylic sketch is a good starting point for a portrait, I think.

I hope to finish it, maybe during this month, maybe later.

It seems the flue finally got me too, I feel a bit weak. Making art is something doable anyway.

  1. Hi Ilona. Hope you feel better. Anything Frida is up my alley. Great job! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Beautiful faces!! I missed the challenge... again :(

    Thank you for your comment on my post, please check my blog where I publish something about the inks and materials for carving. I tried to answer the questions a lot of you asked me. Have a great day!

  3. Lovely work! Hope you'll feel better soon!

  4. I'm loving your work - and love the gold in the piece below too. Much talent here :) xo

  5. Love your Frida sketches -- I always find it very meditative and a wonderful exercise myself to sketch her amazing face and to study in detail those intensely lovely iconic features. Well done!
