Faces



Last weekend, full of coldy germs, I lazily put my feet up and reread a favourite book, the great Figure Drawing without a Model by Ron Tiner, which always inspires me to take up a pencil and get drawing.

The chapter on the anatomy and characteristics of different faces was particularly interesting and I spent ages coming up with a variety of faces, exploring how long and thin or how wide and round they could be and still be feasible. Another section dealt with how and why the topography of a face changes as it ages, which facial muscles lose their elasticity first. All fascinating stuff.

Thanks Penny, this face-drawing lark is getting very addictive!
