Faces

For months now I've been drawing and painting people..... filling up sketchbook pages with doodle after doodle of faces. Some are my friends and family (my husband is getting a bit tired of seeing his face staring back at him from the pages of my sketchbook) and many of these faces I draw come from my imagination.

Often I'll be sketching them at night in front of the tv, or while waiting for an appointment, or whenever I have a little downtime. Page after page.

The ones I really like I usually try painting in watercolor, and sometimes find their way into larger illustrations.

Very recently an artist friend of mine suggested that when I post these to my Instagram account, I include a bio about each of them - so that's what I've started doing.

This is Hannah. She normally enjoys coffee, hiking and peanut butter sandwiches but is upset today because her dog destroyed her favorite handbag.
