So here is my collection of faces I have worked on:
This is painted after a photograph. To depict her pale skin, with little shadow in the face, was quite difficult. Unfortunately the camera does not capture the pale colouring very well.
In the second photograph I had added some warmer shades (yellow) hue, but it is not really visible. I'll work a little more on this portrait, before it's finished!
And the other portrait is another face in my little square sketchbook.
Now to the birds :-)
I havetold you about the international art collaboration last week, and for this I have started to train my
skills in drawing from nature and drawing birds.
The girl was started some time ago. As the sun has been out a lot more this week, I have been sitting outside in my garden, drawing our little apple-tree behind the girl.
And on a paper-roll I started drawing some exotic birds. Originally thinking of cutting them out, but they make a nice decoration all painted in their colourful feather-dresses.
Below you see it all at a glance :-)

And one extra for Paper Saturday, inspired by Manon's post today:

Art is really giving me so much, because I can relax and enjoy myself. It is kind of meditating. (I read that somewhere, and for me it is true!)
Thank you for visiting and commenting. I appreciate your feedback more than I can say. It has kept me going during a hard time of studying language and teaching.
Have a wonderful weekend!
