Quickly Sketched Face

Hello All,

Well, I cant quite believe I am posting this .... I feel really exposed & a little embarrassed at the results, l really do need a lot of work and practice when it comes to sketching faces, portraits were always my nemesis when I took art at school. I have been avoiding the page that has you drawing faces in my doodle art book, so it was time to give it a try.

I quickly sketched this in about 10 min, when I was just going to bed last night. The eyes do look a little freaky, try as I might I cant get 2 to look the same ... hence why I tried to sketch it on graph paper to see if that helped.

My original plan, was I would use the sketch as a base and paint over it, however I decided to tape it into my journal with Washi tape as it is and hopefully in a few years I will be able to look back at it and see how far I have come.

Thanks for looking
Hugs to All
