|Can you find it?|
For the young ladies who will be drawing, these are for beginning practice works. It is to train your mind instinctively to find features in a few strokes. The more you do, the easier they flow. Fill pages! When you learn this, any other face drawing will be easier.
|Start with an egg shape, narrower part to the bottom for chin.|
|Find vertical and horizontal halves, then quarter line, then eighth line. These will be for eyes, nose base, and mouth respectively.|
|Add just SUGGESTIONS of eyes, nose base, and mouth. Do Not draw outlines or solid lines. SKETCH! Like poetry, art should imply. You should leave some things to be filled by the viewer's mind.|
|You can finish with wisps of hair outlines and very few accents. Then STOP!|
And just because...
... the colors were out and the page was ready. Birds are great for quick sketch practice. You can scribble, dash off brush lines, and be expressive. These were done with one of those multicoloured-lead pencils and a calligraphy brush.
Have fun and sketch away.
