playing with faces

I meant to post this a little while ago but too much has been happening so I am doing it now.  In class I have been challenged by having to do faces without a model...from what is in my brain and heart (though I have taken peeks at others around me and even looked at what happens in a mirror from time to time).  I have experimented in the last one with a different technique to what I am used to, trying to create depth using several layers of paint and rubbing it back etc...  Just having fun with the brush and trying to stamp on the voices that say 'ick', 'hopeless' etc etc etc,  just learning to enjoy the process and not being afraid of the outcome not being 'perfect' or even acceptable to others!
