my final 2 faces for 29 Faces in September (since I counted wrong)


I did these pretty rough....sort of hurried them along. Not really satisfied with them but I am stopping. I have 2 other art projects to begin so I have to let this one go and move on. I used old photos of my dad and my mom for my models this time. Messy charcoal again. I have done a lot of charcoal for this project but not sure I am any better at it.

29 Faces in September Day 21 (but might be days 22, 23 and 24 since I have FOUR faces lol)

I started out with charcoal but it did not blend very well...and then I used pencil...I ended up with so much graphite on this that the paper got rough....grainy....this is a sketch of me and 3 of my sibs when we were very young
