Manohra Thai Dance: Face


I thought and thought about how to do the face. I finally settled on a needlepoint approach with two skin tones, pink for the lips, and brown for the other features. I worked it with only one strand of floss. I think it came out very well! The texture is different than the arms and legs but it still works together.

Almost done now! All that’s left is a few details on the crown, the pink flower in her hair, and some grass to stand on.

    I like what you have done with the face. The original picture was a little to cutesy for my liking. Your handling of it gives it a little more seriousness and concentration as you would expect in someone concentrating on their dance technique and artistry. Well don.

      To be honest, it’s somewhat accidental. I found it difficult to control the expression on such a small scale. I think I need more practice drawing faces!
