Face Time! 50 in 15

Time for another speed challenge! 

To mark International Women's Day on March 8th, I'm going to be attempting to draw 500 female faces in 5 hours:: live at Great Art In Shoreditch tomorrow!  

At the same time, I'll also be running a FREE DROP-IN Sketchup and be challenging the attendees to take on the slightly less daunting task of drawing 50 faces in 15 minutes.  Of course I'd love to see anyone/everyone reading this there, but for those who can't make it I thought I'd set it as this week's challenge! 

I've set my clubbers this challenge before, but it's a such a fab creative workout that it's worth returning to time and again!  I like to compare it to powering on the treadmill for 15 minutes: really good for your health and mood - but far less knackering! There isn't time to worry about how things look: it's all about blasting off your creative cobwebs and letting your imagination run wild... 

Ready to take on the challenge? 

Grab yourself a large sheet of paper, your favourite pens, pencils and/or inks, set the timer and DRAW DRAW DRAW! 

Remember: This is an exercise in creativity - not in drawing the 'perfect' portrait! Case in point...

Sometimes though,  this '50 in 15' exercise can produce results some surprising results! 

This was my first attempt at it last year - and it's turned out to be one of my best-selling prints!
