The final four...

Well, as there are only 28 days in this particular February that means today is the last day of the 29 Faces challenge.

Sticking with the dog theme here are my final four faces.  If you pop back on Monday I've got a surprise though - it's NOT  a dog!!

Face 26 & sketch 29 of 75

Face 27 & sketch 30 of 75

Face 28 & sketch 31 of 75

Face 29 & sketch 32 of 75


The 75 day sketch challenge is still on-going though and these are also sketches 29- 32 of that - only another 43 to go - yikes!!

In case you missed my other posts this week you can catch up here:
