More Faceless Figures

Here are 3 more faceless figures from the month of June:  three Parisiennes from a 19th C photo, a sculpture of Marilyn Monroe in a Washington DC hotel, and a sax player from the Tin Pan Blues Band that I sketched in Central Park while my husband watched our grandson Robbie feed the ducks.  If you "google" the name of the sculpture and sculptor, you can see what Marilyn's face looked like.

I like the facelessness.

Top right reminded me of Mary Poppins, nice sketches!

I have issues with faces too, I'll usually focus on the shadows instead of the features.
These are really good sketches though, keep it up!

These are utterly charming, Shirley -- they don't need faces in the least!! LOVE Marilyn!

Love your figures Shirley, and your delicate touch gives them sort of an "old world charm"...beautiful. I also love the way you captured Marilyn's billowing dress!
