June Guys, Face #1, Watercolor and Pen "Man with a Red Tie"

"Man with a Red Tie"
This ACEO is 2.5 x 3.5 inches in size
The old man has a solemn expression, and is a bit melancholy, I think.  But his bright clothes and reddish hair reveal his whimsical side.  

I am doing one face a day during the month of June 2013 for June Guys, a challenge in 29 Faces group on Facebook.  This is #1 for this year.  I did it last year, too!  Great exercise and discipline.  This is also my Paint Party Friday submission.  And my rooster is up there having been chosen by the random generator!


  1. He is great! I love the colors!

  2. Oh I wish I could draw guy faces. I have never tried. Tonight if I succeed, I will try to get in on the 29 faces. This is really wonderful.

  3. How great that you are doing the face a day challenge in June!
    Congratulations on being the featured artist for Paint Party Friday this week, too!
    Happy PPF!!
