Art It Friday – Show Your Face

Hey Amazing Facers, it is Friday and time to #ShowYourFace!

For anyone new here this is a regular place to come and inspire, be inspired, but above all to share our portrait progress week by week. Every Friday at 10 am (BST) a new Show Your Face blog post goes live with the linky to add your blog post or online gallery picture to with any portrait work you have been doing. 

Your face can be drawn, doodled, painted, stitched, be made using any materials and can be any style, all I ask is that it is your artwork. If you use templates, stencils or stamps to build the face anatomy, then they should be ones you have made yourself and not someone else’s. 

Finished pieces, works in progress or retro posts (i.e. older works, not from this week) are all welcome, so come join in and spread the word on your blog/social media outlets. Use hashtag #ShowYourFace if you like! 

Did any of you guys take up the 50% offer with Craftsy last week? If you did I hope you are enjoying the course.

This week I’m back to doodling again. I’m having a major clear up of my workspace and I just grabbed what I had to hand, an old monoprint and a white ink dropper.

Doodling faces with an ink dropper

‘Ok,’ I thought, ‘let’s see if I can make some faces with that. Yeah pretty doodly! But hey still fun.

So what have you been up to with your face this week?

I’m loving the addition of some animal faces in the share. If you missed them then check out Arnoldo L. Romero from A.L. Romero Art and Design with his link from last week and Jeanet from Creating A Fairly Fabulous Life from a couple of weeks ago.

Over To You… 

Link your faces artwork and spread the word on your blog and/or social media, hashtag #ShowYourFace for those of you that use them.

Catch you later Face-Artinators


PS. Some other places you might want to link your work to: Art journal pages link up with Julie Fei-Fan Balzer’s Art Journal Everyday post. Paint work link it up at Paint Party Friday.

    1. Hey Linda, thanks! No I didn't print the ink dropper doodles, but they are drawn on a monoprint from a gelatine plate. Although I like the idea of scanning and printing them! Nice, thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚ Kx
