I signed up for a portrait class with Pam Carriker. She has a beautiful style and while I don't think it will end up being much like my style I want to learn her techniques and incorporate them into finding my own style...whatever that might end up being. :o)
Here is a sketch done in graphite using her techniques. It was interesting to learn how she shades and how she lays out the face to get the proper proportions. I am excited to do more and more and more!
I also did a practice page of eyes, noses and mouths just to try the different styles. So fun! This art journal thing is so freeing. I can do whatever I want and not have to worry about it "turning out." I love it!
