Morning Portraits

My current morning art project of filling a small sketchbook with portraits is going very slow. Life has been a bit unbalanced lately and I just don't seem to get around to my morning art as much as I would like to. As I stated in my previous post about morning art, getting enough sleep is a priority right now and that just means that sometimes I skip my daily art practice. are five more portraits I finished:

I am really enjoying using multicoloured pencils for these and in these five I especially like the effect of the fourth one. In fact I am enjoying them so much in fact that I may do the entire rest of the sketchbook with them, which was not my intention when I started at all.

As before my models are mail order catalogue girls. They are not a great likeness by the way, but that is not why I do them anyway, I'm just trying to enjoy drawing women's faces and use photographs for reference of hair and positions of the head and expressions of the face. I see many flaws in all of them, but as a collection of portraits I rather like them.

Hope you are doing something artsy you find pleasing and  I wish you all a wonderful day.
