29 Faces challenge

I decided to give this challenge a try--I usually have trouble sticking with anything for 29 days, but so far, so good. Here are my first 6 faces. How many can you guess? (answers at the bottom of the post)








Ghandi, Einstein, Oscar Wilde, Edgar Allen Poe, F Scott Fitzgerald, and Che Guevera.

Well done! Didn't get F. Scott, but then, I didn't know what he looks like!

I missed 2. I thought Oscar was Emelia Earhart :)

These are wonderful! I admire anyone who can do faces.

Lovely idea! I recognized Gandhi immediately. Had a bit more trouble with the other ones, but then I'm always bad with putting names to faces :-)

That is a real challenge. I don't know if I could manage one face. But it's good to challenge ourselves, so I must try it sometime. You are so good about trying a variety of genres and mediums.

Great that you've drawn men! I recognized all but Poe. Beautiful sketches.

Oh Janet, love them all! You are very good at sketching and it is the best to sketch everyday (which I don´t do, but I probably should ;) http://piaromsartjournaling.blogspot.de

Way to go Janet, I love seeing what you are creating now. Portraits are fun and challenging and you are doing awesome. I know 29 days is a lot of days to stick to something, we are so alike there my dear. oxxooxxo When I go a week without doing a portrait I get so rusty, we gotta keep on. So your challenge is saying Annette do it!!!! lol hugs

Looking good....and so were the florals a few days ago. Glad SOMEBODY has been productive. I've had zero motivation except to finish a 2nd mountain painting for Katie. Courtney is moving into a new apartment and has requested a BIG painting for the wall behind her sofa. That will be fun. We'll get to L. Perella one of these days......
