Creative Practice: 100 Faces


I gave myself the challenge to draw 100 faces sometime at the beginning of February. This one wasn't dated. This one I drew without referencing anything.
Then I decided to follow the through some of the instructions from Jane Davenport's book Drawing and Painting Beautiful Faces. So I'll be sharing them here.

Circumstances Changed...





There's been a ton of unrest and conflicted going on in my sphere. It doesn't involve me but DAMN is it so draining! Creativity has been my only bright spot.
I'm ready for these energies to shift.

This is a Zendala Template I found on Pinterest. From Jo in NZ.


So I sketched it out small, again Like 4 inches.

Than I added my doodles/tangles. And you can see the teardrop  doodle I added there too. I think I'll sketch this one again a few more times. I want to create this smaller and larger so I'll let you know what transpires.

This piece from Artist Sofia Bonati, was my inspiration this week. The butterflies are what originally caught my eye.


I did this on a little scratch piece of paper about 3 x 2. Again I drew the face how I was comfortable. I just did not try to make my butterflies look like butterflies. Maybe I'll go back in there with a marker later. Who knows.

Focus on Healing...





It is not easy to shift your focus back to healing. Especially when life is throwing all kinds of bullshit your way. And its even more of a challenge when the bullshit isn't yours, its just rubbing off on you. Meditation has been an important key to shifting my focus, because I haven't been able to release through exercise. I pinched something in my shoulder area. Not fun.
Art journaling is also another form of meditation for me. Off to meditate.

Creative Practice


I decided to color this picture because its not something I would normally gravitate to.

I uploaded an image of mine to Cafe Press. There is only one design at the moment but a few items you can choose. Here is the link to my shop: AliciaSplendeur
