The homework challenge is simply gesso and texture with recording the process. I have the gesso and a bit of texture down but I am still not 100% sure what I want to do. Jane used one stencil with a bunch of different medias to see how each one reacted to the paper and gesso and then drew a face over the top of that with a quick little quote. I am more indecisive then she, so I haven't quite gotten down what I want to do.
I began the second week for colored pencils and I was surprised to see that Jane had included drawing faces and her secret technique to drawing bodies! Watching her videos, and watching her work, I kept thinking, "I'm going to try...but I doubt that I am going to get my work any where close to how amazing Jane is." Once the videos were done, I took a deep breathe and drew. My first face following Jane...
Even I was impressed! I mean, it isn't perfect, but nothing really is. And if know me, you know that I have been wanting to draw like none other but I have never really had the confidence to challenge and concur. Comparing my first face drawing to this drawing from Jane's class...I am so excited that I enrolled!!

Again, not perfect, but it's a start. And it is a better start then what I originally had in mind.
I feel like I am well on my way!!
