I tend to avoid drawing faces or portraits mostly because I find it difficult to capture a true likeness and I haven’t found it as enjoyable as sketching buildings. However, recently, I have found faces fascinating. The deepness of the eyes, the untold stories etched into lines or how the shadows falls – faces are actually a joy to sketch.
There is a great app called Sktchy which is brilliant. It has many photos for you to sketch from, an engaged community and teaching videos. Sketching faces is a perfect way to relax on a cold winter evening. If you haven’t tried it, I recommend you give it a try!
