Art It Friday – Show Your Face Inspired By Lee Krek — No. 7

Kim Dellow over on her blog has a fun thing going called Art It Friday – Show Your Face Inspired by {Insert Name Here}.  I discovered it while browsing some linked blog pages on Julie Fei-Fan Balzer’s regular Friday post Art Journal Everyday post which she usually posts regularly every Friday.  I found Paint Party Friday through Kim Dellow’s post.  This is a fun group, too!  There are some really talented artist doing all sorts of painty things over there.

The new theme of “Inspired By” is to encourage everyone to try a different style that someone else might exhibit–giving credit of course to the artist of inspiration.  🙂  This week my artist of inspiration is Lee Krek.  She is a regular poster to Kim Dellow’s blog on Fridays and I wanted to try a face like hers.  Finally back in my own art room this week after what seems like weeks of endless travel, I took my time and enjoyed the process.  I can still see pieces of me peeking through in places which kind of amuses me although I really did try to make it as much like one of Lee’s sketches as I could.

I want to get better at sketching portraits so this is a good challenge for me to take to improve that skill.  It has been a fun adventure this month trying to mimic the style of some my fellow “Facers” from Kim’s blog postings.

Here is this week’s “face” for my post:

    • I didn’t know how it would go at first but now that I have participated with a couple of sketches I think it was a wonderful exercise. It really is quite fun to look at someone else’s work to that detail and really study it. I learned a lot! Great idea! 🙂
