Morning Portraits

My current project of morning art continues. I'm filling a 32 page sketchbook with nothing but portraits. Most of these are done in multicolour pencils by Koh-i-noor. I like using these so much that I'm almost sorry I did the first two portraits in this sketchbook in watercolour. Those two now make the book look less consistent, but oh well...these things happen and it is only a sketchbook after all.

Here are portraits 10 to 15:

I'm still picking faces from the same (old) mail order catalogue I started with. I love drawing women and girls, I'm not sure why. I have always done this, since primary school actually. I was always drawing girl's faces in my notebook, often just from my imagination. I guess some things just stay with you your entire life. ;-)

Hope you are doing well wherever you are and wishing you a wonderful and artsy weekend!


  1. All beautifully done! I too love drawing women and girls but haven't done any in awhile [and trust me, they are nowhere near as good as yours but still, I have fun with it when I do!] lol

  2. Your faces are always nice to see. I never use men in anything regarding my art journals or anything creative. I guess I don't connect men much with art journaling and etc.
    Why I don't, I have no clue. LOL

    1. I think my preference stems from my youth when I read a lot of girl's comics and tried to emulate the faces from them, but I'm not sure why I never broadened my horizon to include men in my drawings as well. Maybe I should try a series of male portraits in the future just for practice.


I appreciate each and every comment. They make me really happy. I don't like spammers though and that's why the word verification is turned on. I know it's a pain, but I hope you understand.

I try to respond to all comments by directly replying in the comment section, but please understand that sometimes this may take some time. Know that I read them all and that they make my day.
