29 Faces in May days 10 & 11

I think I have lost a day and a post this week :0(  I would swear that I posted Day 10 yesterday...but it is no where to be found ????
It's a 6 x 9 Graphite drawing .... I'm really loving my graphites this month.  

However last night they were not working for me at all and after many erasers I finally gave up and just played with the watercolor pencils. The results being....
Not really sure what I think of this one. One minute I look at it and want to throw it away and the next minute I like it in a funky sort of way. 
My day at work yesterday was very stressful so maybe that's why she looks like she does. 
Today was even more stressful and tonight we went a no face tonight... will have to play catch up again :0) 
The Ballet was very good. It was written by my son-in-law and the choreography was done by his daughter.  
It is a spoken word ballet about the effects of Alzheimer's  on a family. 
A tribute to his mother who lost her battle to the disease in 2009. A very moving tribute.

Paint Party Friday


  1. The graphite face is my favourite... it shows through that you are enjoying working with graphite.... great tonal work...xx

  2. The ballet sounds amazing, what a lovely tribute. I like your second one, its got a fun stylized look to it!

  3. Your drawings are beautiful and lovely colors in the last one! :)
    Some days are just like that, sometimes when I draw I see only mistakes, but I just go on drawing with only one purpose: to throw it afterwards.. but when I have it completed, I start to like it somehow and it has come to a new look, a new paint.. And I like that! :)

  4. Love your faces, Carol. :) And such a lovely event you went to. You must be so proud of your family. :)

  5. Great faces Carol. The event you attended sounds magical. Happy PPF, Annette x

  6. When you explained being stressed out I could see it in your painting...good job, love the graphite too!!
