Show Your Face

Watcha facers it is time to share your face work and I don’t mean your nose job, I mean your artwork baby! So link away and let’s see what you have been up to.

First up the admin…


  • In The Style Of  – November 2015 (examine our favourite established artists, incorporate what they do through our own face practise)
  • Focus On Eyes – January 2016 (break out of our normal practice and try different styles of doing eyes such as traditional, cartoon, manga etc. As suggested by Susana Magenheimer)
  • Inspired By – March 2016 (pick fellow Facers to inspire our work this month)

Feel free to let me know if you have any more themes or ideas for Show Your Face.

Don’t forget:

  • Show Your Face is a community link up for portrait work in any style or medium.
  • the aims are to share, learn, practise, inspire, and be inspired.
  • to make sure that the face artwork is yours, if you use any stamps or templates to build the face they should be designed by you.
  • the link is open from 10 am (BST) every Friday and stays open for a week, so link away.
  • finished pieces, works in progress or retro posts (i.e. older works, not from this week) are all welcome.
  • to link back to the link blog post here for that week.
  • Spread the word on your blog/social media outlets and use the #ShowYourFace hashtag in social media.

My Share This Week…

My share this week is a bit of a cheat! I really was not finding my face mojo this week so I went for a doodle again and this time I’ve simplified it even further and just focussed on the simplest face form – a circle! So this is an art journal page in one of my junk journals, with layers of paint and torn pieces of paper then some simple lines and circles using a paint pen.

Over To You…

Link your faces artwork and spread the word on your blog and/or social media, hashtag #ShowYourFace . Please do let anyone you think would be interested in sharing their portraits know about our community here.
