In my first travel sketchbook I didn’t draw any faces. I mostly drew landscapes or scenery around me. In fact, during the first year with my watercolors (Sept. ’16 – Aug. ’17) I painted six faces total. It’s no wonder that faces feel so tricky (eyes especially)!
That’s why in August of 2017 I decided I’ll paint 100 portraits. I’m not giving myself a deadline at this point, so we’ll see what happens, but if I were able to paint one a week I would finish within two years from now.
I’ll be posting all of the portraits below, as they’re completed.
