Dinas Wakleys Faces Workshop March 2014

I have been very lucky this year in the workshops I have been able to attend.  I have been doubly fortunate in that I have been able to attend 2 lots of workshops this year with the amazing artist Dina Wakley.  One in March and the second just last weekend - as always they were held at AFTH in Harrogate.  In march I did workshops on faces and another on using animals in my work ( I will do a separate post for that day)
I haven't really done much in the way of  drawing faces but I love the faces that Dina puts in her work.
So here are a few of the first attempts - warm up exercises to get in some practise, using unusual tools to draw or paint with or using our non dominate hand.

This one was using one of Dina's face stamps and creating the figure round it!

The more that we practised - the better we got!!
I could really see the improvement from where I started to these last 3 pieces which I was very pleased with.

If you ever get the chance to attend any of her classes I would encourage you to go - you wont regret it!!!
She is a wonderful lady, a great teacher and a very talented artist!
Have a go at faces, its fun once you get started!!
