Faces with Crayons



My friend convinced me to show it all. So, I had to edit it into 3 segments. Turn the sound up, you know I tend to mumble and listen for the birds.

Expect,

Sharon

  2. Thank you Sharon!! These are just wonderful. I'm trying hard to learn to draw and paint and your tutorial's are the best.
    A hint for those who say they can't hear you even when the sound is turned up. I discovered that by using
    the earbuds from my MP3 player in my laptop (they just happen to fit) I can hear everything~~~~even your cute little accent.
    Love all of your tutorials.

  4. Great videos. Thank you so much. For some reason faces seem to be a toughie to get right. I think it's because we are so familiar with them that we see the flaws but so unfamiliar that we can't always find a way to make it right. As I say that it doesn't make a lot of sense but that's what I think.

  9. Sharon,

    These were wonderful. I learned so much. Only thing i would suggest is to have the camera behind you looking down so we can see you paint right side up. Now I want to play with my crayons once more. You are the best.

  11. Wonderful tutorials. I learned a lot from them, you are a good and sharing teacher.
    One question...what type of crayons are you using? Are they regular wax crayon?
    I adore your apron...a great inspiration ;)

  12. You are amazing! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I love how you paint, I love your art work! I have wanted for so long to learn to face paint on fabric. I have done a few fabric doll faces, but this takes things to another level for me.
    Thanks so much!

  13. Thank you so much Sharon for making my morning cuppa a wonderful time for me today, (my birds were singing with yours),...I loved watching your tutorials, though I think you should be charging for them...so much info.. I watched with avid interest. I am amazed that you are painting(crayoning) on muslin, I cant wait to give it a try and will show you my efforts soon...I couldnt hear how you made the muslin sturdier, the backing? Was it ordinary fine muslin or something else?..
    Thank you again for being such a kind person and sharing your techniques with everyone...xx

  17. Sharon, just wanted to thank you for taking the time to post these videos. They have been such a big help and inspiration. I have been dithering over attempting portraits but will now dive in and explore. Thanks for helping out a struggling stick figure pro, LOL!

  21. Sharon, this looks like so much fun!
    I want to try it, but am wondering what kind of crayons are you using? I am pretty sure the wax ones won't shade like that. Thanks for sharing with us!
