29 Faces — Blog Challenge — No. 23 & Art It Friday – Show Your Face In the Style of Karen O’Brien!

Alaya Art sponsored 29 Faces in September 2015.  I didn’t get all of my 29 faces completed during the challenge period but I am going to continue with them until I get them all done.  It has helped develop my skills so much that I want to make sure I make it through all 29!  Also, Kim Dellow over on her blog has a fun thing going called Art It Friday – Show Your Face.  During the month of November Kim is challenging us to do a portrait in the style of another known artist.  I just received Karen O’Brien’s new book, Imaginary Creatures, this week and I enjoyed it so much that I thought I might attempt to imitate her style using one of her pieces of work that she displayed in her book.  Here is Face No. 23:

  1. I love this! When I saw the thumbnail I really wanted to see more! I really like the shape and how it fills the space. The crown is gorgeous and the eyes are so special! I don’t know the work of the artist you’ve been inspired by, but I really would like to look up her work now! I’m off to Google her! xx

    • Thank you, Julie! Your comment is SO sweet! I am honored that you like him so much. I kind of like him, too. He just has a regal quietness about him, I think. I’m sorry it took me so long to respond. Life has a way of getting in the way of other things… Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. 🙂

  2. I like her faces as well and you made your face brilliant inspired by her style – I love the eyes – the background and that amazing crown and how special unique this whimsical head turned out – in short – I love all about it and say THANK YOU for linking to Moo Mania & More!
    Happy new week Jill!
