A week of faces for  28 Faces in February 

A freckled boy with a very suspicious expression drawn with charcoal on a page painted with tinted gesso.  The splotches are made by sprinkling water drops on the wet paint.  After it dries, the page is blotted with a paper towel with removes the drops and the still wet paint under them.
Frida Kahlo, daring


drawn in charcoal on a white page that I washed with tinted gesso.


Bearded football player drawn with Ebony pencil and colored with colored Prismacolor pencils.

Who is he?

Steve Jobs, intelligent

Steve Jobs drawn with black and white charcoal on heavy brown paper from a grocery sack.  I love drawing on that stuff.


Indira Gandhi drawn with Ebony pencil on a page splashed with tinted and thinned gesso. 

I am feeling burned out so I loosened up.  A couple of scribbled drawings.  The "Medicine Woman" was drawn with in on a page my grand children had "drawn" on.  Thus we have a scribble on a scribble.  The second is a man with a very angry expression drawn with Sharpie pen on my fave, the grocery sack.

  1. I love how all of your faces are so different, in different media and so well done...what this challenge is all about. The boy is rather haunting...I could see this on the cover of a book. Medicine Woman has a lot of character and what can I say about Frida? LOVE her and you did a great job capturing her likeness!
