Out of My Comfort Zone: Faces

I decided to step out of my comfort zone and paint a face. I've been thinking about it for a while, but, the process seemed intimidating.

I looked at a bunch of YouTube videos, but liked this tutorial by Dina Wakley the best for my purposes.

Sooo...here is the result (sans hair and a hat).


I am not sure how I will use faces in my work (I've been painting flowers...I'm not used to having something stare back at me!), but I enjoyed the process and will definitely be trying this again.
