Craft Barn Alpha Challenge - Letter G

Evening all,

ha ha ha ha ha I thought I would surprise you all and get my entry in early this time LOL!!!!!!!!!

If you fancy seeing what the fun is all about please pop on over HERE and if you fancy a peek at all the other G entries please pop on over HERE.

Anyhoo, I dusted off the big girl pants again!!!!!!!!!! I love drawing but have to admit that it doesn't come easily so I always refer to others for help, usually this involves pulling 'The Complete Guide to Drawing & Illustration' by Peter Gray off my bookshelf, it is a fab book in my opinion and breaks things down into easily followed steps - lol I think I would be lost without it!!!!!!!!

My chosen word, sticking to my theme, is GRACES, the Greek Goddesses of charm, beauty, nature, creativity and fertility........


Apologies for the poor photo, the light was fading rapidly!! I have edited it a little to try to improve it but hey ho ha ha ha!!!!! The scans are a little better I think........




Quite rough around the edges but I'm so pleased I didn't chicken out again and go for a collage option tee hee!!!!!!!!
Lol I must have been thinking about a film I love (The Bone Collector) while I was sketching as I think Thalia looks very much like Angie in the film!!!!!! Ha ha ha I WAS watching Tomb Raider again the other night, that's probably what sparked it!!

Products used - Tando Creative, TCW and Tim Holtz stencils, Decoart and Ranger acrylics, promarkers, stabilo marks all pencil and various alpha stamps from my stash.

Many Thanks for popping by and leaving a comment if you feel you would like to, your time and thoughts are always much appreciated.

Huge hugs

Dawn x

Color me IMPRESSED. Love the faces. Not rough at all. In fact, very, very well done. And on time, too. Good for you. Can your Graces give me a bit of beauty (grin)?

Lovely Graces, for sure! The few faces I've attempted are NOT for public viewing....if I could do as well as you I wouldn't be so hesitant. Great pages!

Very cool page and especially drawings, you have captured the essence of the three graces which is harder to do than just drawing three faces - so well done and I expect to see more of this. Practice makes perfect.lol. How does it feel to be nagged from the other side of the world?haha. Look forward to seeing your next page.

You sure did hit the mark again! You can draw these faces a site better than I could - my drawings would scare you half to death!! I am impressed Dawn - Bravo!
