29 Faces Challenge - Face #1

It is that time again - Whoo hoo!!  Time for the 29 Faces Challenge.  It was such fun playing along last September that I was determined to try it again this month!! 
A big thanks to Ayala Art for sponsoring such a fun challenge!!
Had fun painting today.  This girl just seemed to need green hair to me - I didn't think much about it but when others have seen it they invariably comment on the hair color.
She is living in my ledger art journal - she should get a lot more company in there before the month is over!  You should play too - I can't wait to see all the great faces this month!!

Ooh, I like her! I didn't notice the green hair until you mentioned it. I think it suits her. :-)

I hoped you would be doing the challenge so there would be lots of your wonderful faces coming... not that I don't miss the beetles a bit... and this one is just gorgeous and loved seeing your workspace...even if it was scary neat...xx

I love this page! Everything seems to go together so well; the portrait goes well with the background as well. Also, I forgot about 29 Faces... Thanks for reminding me! :D

She is wonderful - I forgot about the challenge. I may try to join in a couple of days late. I love that pen work in your lady's hair as well. HPPF

i like the green hair!
one of my mom's friends had a bad perm/color job, and when she got under the fluorescent lights, her hair turned green. beautician couldn't fix it, her hair was fried, and they cut it all off, her hair was 1/2 inch all over her head. she cried. but she was cute with no hair, good face for it.
