Where does time fly? I remember drawing this face and it was springtime. Now we are in the middle of the summer and July is here. Can you believe it? I absolutely love summer, although in the last 5 years (or maybe even more) the summers were pretty hot and hard to cope with without A/C. But I still love summer, who doesn’t? I have so many faces to show you, and this is one of them! Read more to find out about it.
One of the faces I enjoyed the most drawing and painting while in the lockdown period was this girl with an elongated face and two funky buns. And she has turquoise blue hair!
This whimsical girl does not only appears to have an elongated face, but also an elongated neck. Extra-narrowed long necks were what I used to draw when I first started with art journaling, but in time my girls became more realistic. However, this girl like many others is not inspired by any photo or real people. The faces are the fruit of my imagination, that’s why I like it when they transform so beautifully from an idea to a drawing and then painting.
I drew this face on a warm sunny day in my yard immersed in thoughts and didn’t “think” too much of it. In fact, that’s the point, you don’t have to ‘think’, you have to be in the flow to create whatever comes out. So she did.
Although I love acrylic paints, out of commodity, I chose to color this face in watercolors and I don’t regret it a bit. I used Caran d-ache Neocolors 2 and I love the result of it. I also chose to go big this time and used my Derwent A4 art journal I have had for so long, but that hasn’t been completed to the date.
In this art journal, I also drew other faces that I have included in my Drawing (and painting) whimsical faces online course as a printout and use for exercising purposes in the class.

See you next time, with another face!
