Hello Friends!

In case you haven't heard, I ADORE drawing and painting portraits!  I think it is because I just love people so much, and I feel that creating portrait art helps me to connect on a more personal level with others.  I truly want to know a person's story, and when I paint a portrait, I feel as if I am getting to share a piece of that person with you.  I also am sharing a piece of my soul with the viewer as well! 

 

The videos below are a great resource to those of you that need some guidelines for face-mapping!  Hopefully this videos will help you with features and proportions!

 

We have an amazing Artist Community on Facebook that we would love for you to join!  This is a safe place for you to share what you create and meet other creative minds like you!  I sure hope to see you there!

Big hugs!
