Pen and Ink...and maybe some paint

29 Faces-Day 6

I think I'll do one more from a picture book and maybe tomorrow try a real person again! (I think these children's books illustrations are my favorite things to copy!)

I couldn't stop with just his face. I love the dark woods in the background! You might recognize Robin Hood from "Each, Peach, Pear, Plum" by Janet Ahlberg. One of my fave illustrators!

Everyone have fun drawing faces for the "29 Face Challenge"!



  1. One of my favorite illustrators, too! You did a fantastic job with Robin Hood!

  2. Dear Lisa,
    Your blog is full of love, sunshine and joy. Lovely! I like that illustrator, too. Please keep up your wonderful work!
    Best wishes& kind regards, Sadami

  3. A wonderful illustration! I am delighted you included the woods! The woods give your illustration more depth. With joy and gratitude, Angi

  4. I'm enjoying your drawings and I can tell you enjoy doing them. Best wishes, Ann.

  5. What a lovely delicate drawing. We had some of Ahlberg's original work on display at the museum recently. From tiny thumbnail skethes through to the finished watercolours. She is a great loss to children's book illustration.


Thanks for dropping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts! :)
