Beginnings of a unique challenge with One Hundred Faces.
I am so excited to have found a new art challenge, One Hundred Faces.
I had been searching for one of these and actually it sort of landed right in front of me while on Instagram.
Inspired by @sharontomlinson , @reneeplains and @flowrsinherhair to paint/draw 100 faces.
These are small at 2 x 3.5″. I would love for you to follow along or even start doing them yourself.
Just tag as #onehundredfaces. So far I have done 4.
Why would I start 100 Faces?
I find it very exciting to be apart of a group challenge, not to mention the practice.
What do I want to get out of this?
What I am aiming for is perfecting my love of creating faces. Kinda of a no brainer, ugh?

I have students all the time ask me how do I come up with my color schemes. What colors go with other colors . For me it is as basic as looking at fabric, wallpaper, or magazines etc. Sometimes just looking at a color wheel doesn’t quite cut it. Take a look below at some of the examples I pulled together. If you notice, in most articles, they will have listed a color pallet and then styled accessories and fabrics in the other pictures like below. In other photo, are colors like the color pallet above. All of these examples are from the Grandinroad August 2014 catalogue. Great magazine I might add.
I enjoy learning through video. I can zero in and better yet, fast forward, since my attention span is pretty short! Below is a fabulous film that was on CBS about three years ago with Mary Whyte. I have admired her work for years and was fortunate enough to soak it all in at the Greenville County Art Museum a few years back. If you ever get a chance do not miss one of her exhibits. Actually while I have your attention, go ahead and check out her incredible books . I can promise you will fall in love with Mary Whyte’s work and you will not want to fast forward this film!
Enjoy your time with American Artist Mary Whyte.
