Show Your Face – Quick Draw

Hello amazing Facers, It’s July, I know, hard to believe! But it is and as it is it means that we have a prompt and our prompt this month is – Quick Draw Faces as suggested by Gibby Frogett. This is a great exercise as I have recently discovered so I hope you will have a go at it and share the results some time this month here on Share Your Face. Thanks for the suggestion Gibby Frogett!

So shall we share again 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.

Looking For The Blog Button?

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.

    never thought of drawing just half of a face-interesting, and it does look striking. Will get to some quick draws soon:)

  2. Hi Kim
    Love your latest installment, it's half a face yet it looks complete at the same time, I agree with Linda Kunsman striking indeed x x x

    What a great prompt. I'm late linking up due to all the muddle we're still in and I've just been working on lots of wearable portraits, but next week I'm going to have a go at seeing how fast I can create a face! Love your 3 minute half face – very dramatic and strong. xxx

    3 minutes Kim? aww thats brilliant! my 6 minutes is rubbish, my excuse? a bit of carpel tunnel still – but without it, it wouldn't be any better 🙁
    Have a great week… Gill x
