Sketching Faces Class

Hello Friends!
I have been taking another class....think I'm a "class-a-holic"!! This class is pencil sketching the face. We just got done learning eyes and next are going on to noses. Then next week, we'll go on to mouths. I suppose that the week after that, we'll go on to the full face with all of the features.
This class is given by Monica Zúñiga of http://monicazuniga.blogspot.com/ and she is in Mexico. She is a very talented mixed media artist and her work is just beautiful. When I found that she was offering classes, I immediately signed up. She is also offering classes on how to paint faces and backgrounds. I think that I will sign up for one of those when this class is done.
Anyway, I just wanted to show my latest efforts. I am having fun with my sketchbook!!
Have a great day!
hugs, Sue

Hey Sue,
There is a recipe but you can buy it and it's called Elmers Art paste. You mix it up to a thickness that resembles liquid mat medium. Then you wet your paper down with this paste and lay on color--acrylic or watercolor from the tube. Nice effects.

Hey Sue,
You are so encouraging! I also don't use reds much either. I might add more college elements and that is always a challenge for me--to add more college elements. Thanks for your comments.

Hi Sue! Thanks for stopping by my blog. You asked about the pretty deep lavender flowers....

They are the Blue Danube variety of Ageratum.

They ARE gorgeous, aren't they!!!

Hope to see you again sometime.
