29 Faces, Day 27 (I think)

Bother, I've got a bit muddled with how many faces I've done, I'm pretty sure this is day 27!!
Oh well, only 2 more to go!!

I've called this one Autumn, as that's how it came out, I honestly have no idea what is going to come out of my hands by the end, so I've decided to work on the other 3 seasons and do a little series, should keep me busy !

Nibblefest Art Contest Entries

I'm a member of a group of artists called Nibblefest, it started out as an Ebay group and they have an ebay contest once a month, with set themes and the idea is you list your art for a starting bid of 99c (64p) and get people to nibble, then bite, person with the most bids wins and a person with the highest amount bid wins. No prizes, just for fun.

Here are my 2 entries, the theme this month is black and white, only a day and a bit to go, can I entice you to nibble and bite??? Click on their titles to see the auctions.

29 Faces, The Backlog!

I haven't forgotten, honest, I've still been doing them but it's been half term and then my phone battery dies in the evening by the time I get to sit down and update this so......I haven't posted any for a while, but now you're going to get a whole load in one go, you lucky people!!

29 Faces Day 11

Phew, finally catching up!!

Here's today's one, I really like this one but it hasn't proved as popular on my Facebook page, I wonder why?

29 Faces Day 10

I did 2 quick sketches today which kind of makes up for the weekend that I lost, hopefully I'll be back on track this week!

29 Faces Day 9

I had to miss out days 8 and 9 as I was at my parent's house celebrating my daughter's 18th birthday with all of my family, so here is day 9 (by the calendar) or technically,
my 7th face.

29 Faces Day 6

I meant to post this yesterday but totally forgot, so here she is today. 

It's my daughters 18th birthday this weekend so I'm going to be busy with baking and entertaining so the next couple of faces are just going to be sketches I think.

I had good fun with this one, mixed media, everything from watercolour to oil paint and collage, on mixed media paper.

29 Faces Day 2

I started and finished this one today, and at one point I thought I had ruined it, her face has changed about 4 times!!
I think I've finally finished it, although I'll probably come back to it in a couple of days and think "It needs more white hair dangly doodles" or something.

29 Faces Day 1

Here is today's entry, I started it yesterday and finished it this afternoon so the rest of them probably won't be as accomplished as this, but who knows!!!


I've set up an ebay account just for my art, I've been selling for over 10 years on ebay so if you ever worry that I have zero feedback just check the feedback for retro-rani, my other account. I've only just listed my first few things so I don't think they've gone live yet, but keep checking and they will be there soon. Annd Davies Art on eBay

29 Faces Challenge

Right, to kick off this new blog good and proper I am going to take part in the 29 Faces Challenge and draw or paint one face a day for 29 days, that will be the easy bit, the difficult bit will be blogging and linking and things like that, I'm really not very good with all that kind of malarky, so tomorrow is the start, watch this space !
