Week #2 of A Diary of Faces

This weeks reference artist for A Diary of Faces is Nicolae Grigrescu a Romanian artist.  I loved his work!  Here are my renditions in the order that I painted them this week.  I will probably not be able to keep up the pace that I have these past two weeks, but it is a go at your own pace class.  I love that!

I loved this face and that it is dark!  Good challenge.


I just took off of this one,  this is the first time I had ever painted without a sketch. Just wanted to give it a try & I love it!


I loved the colorful clothing and the head scarf in this one . The details are very challenging.


Had to give the no sketch thing another try. I loved the angle of her head.



That's it for this week.
See you later,

Happiness

The sum of happiness is made up of a thousand details. A little kindness done one less fortunate gives the heart a beat of pleasure that no millinery or laces or jewels can possibly inspire.
To overcome prejudice is more satisfying than a ten-course dinner.
To subdue a difficulty and smother a selfish disire is to become strong and splendid.
If life is worth living at all, it is worth living in a state of progress and improvement.
If we moan and groan, filling the air with dissatisfaction and gloom, we can scarcely hope to partake of much contentment.
All you need is a good thump on the back by some cheerful soul who has faith in you, and promise to yourself that you will face your work and your worries cheerfully,-(Selected)
