Show Your Face

Hey Facers, thanks so much for linking up last week it is great to see your work. So are you ready to share your faces this week?

First up the admin…


  •  Quick Draw Faces – July 2016 (set a timer to say 10-15 min – or less if you dare! – and draw a face or several faces in that time. Suggested by Gibby Frogett).
  • Change Hands – September 2016 (try using your non-dominant hand to draw/ paint / make your face this month. Suggested by Hazel Agnew).

Remember all are optional prompts, you don’t have to use them, they are there if you fancy playing, if not just link up your usual work as normal.

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 #ShowYourFaceFriday hashtag in social media.
  • There is a prompt every other month. Using the prompts is totally optional and just there if you fancy playing along. You can still post your face work even if you haven’t used the prompt.

If you want to wear the blog button with pride then hop on over to Show Your Face 31st July 2015 to grab it and there are instructions on how to put it on your blog there too.

My Share This Week…

A Stabilo All pencil sketch from Kim Dellow

Scribbled in the my Junk Journal with a Stabilo All pencil. I quite like the way the picture in the background has added colour to the face and interesting details with the swirls above the eyebrow.

  2. Your placement of the portrait on this page over the print was perfect. I love the way the photograph makes it look like an extension of the eye. Happy sketching!
