Thank you so much for the videos. I am one of "those" who struggles to draw faces. This technique is great and cannot wait to start my own page. You have so much patience showing us "how to" effectively, the 4 videos went by super fast. I intend on watching them again and have saved as a fave. Thanks again, Sue
