Gazing Heavenward

inner peace

i have been taking Jane Davenport's 
artini class: Expressions 
this is from the lesson: upturned face
i will have to practice noses from this angle!



  1. Follow the direction of your nose.... when activated.... for it then truly knows what to uncover to make current sense of the world. Follow then any sensation to sniff in the source of it All.

  2. Oh Tammie... she is beautiful... and such wonderful expression... this is another class I would love to do... Jane's classes are awesome aren't they...

    Jenny ♥

  3. Lovely face from an unusual angle... Love the paint dripping! :)

  4. You did a great job. I haven't yet been able to master drawing a nose when the face is upturned. It always turns out looking more like a pig than anything else ....

  5. I was going to say the nose gives it interest...I really like it Tammie. The eyes are incredible.

  16. This is wonderful Tammie. I always have so much trouble drawing faces from this angle (I tend to avoid it altogether!) but you have managed it brilliantly! Your work is always filled with such serene-ness.

  17. Oh, she's stunning, Tammie! I love how freely you've applied the magenta paint. Sublime is definitely the right word. :)

  18. You have developed such a skill with colouring the eyes, Tammie! Your 29 faces are coming along beautifully!

  19. She is beautiful. There is something so calming and ethereal about her.

  20. Love this one...my favourite...the colours...the shading...definitely does look peaceful and sublime
