a full set of lips and a pizza face . . .

I SAID A PIECE OF FACE!  In order to draw faces I decided that I am going to study my own face in a mirror.  This is how I look when I close my eyes and draw myself . . . well, I got the hair right . . .  coming next - reason #9 why I should open those watercolors and read that watercolor book!

My, my, Myra........what haven't you tried. I know, try sketching your face while touching your face with your other hand. Let your drawing hand mimic the what your touching hand is doing. That is a method I learned about how to draw a flower from a photo; by tracing with your finger on the photo while drawing with the other hand.
Are you game?

Myra - I love this! It's so expressive and your lines are varied so nicely. Great drawing!
