A Face Sketch Using Pastel PencilsSince my last post, I have been diligently practicing drawing faces.  I’ve been using pencils, charcoals, pastel pencils, acrylic paints, watercolors and colored pencils.  I believe there are 2 keys to success in learning to draw faces – learn how to use proportion measurements and lots of regular practice.  And probably even more important than those two – have fun.   Here’s one of my recent sketch sessions during which I had a lot of fun!  Enjoy!
