FIRST A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT:  If your drawings do not turn out the way you were hopping do not give up, learning to draw takes practice. Draw everyday and soon you will be making beautiful pictures. Come back to this blog often and try some of my other projects.

Worksheet from How to Draw a Pilgrim Woman's Face. 

Our pilgrim lady has a soft gentle face so we are avoiding using a lot of lines.

Start with a circle, then draw the jaw and chin as a large curved "V" shape, so she will have a little pointed chin. Draw a line up and down the center so you can use it as a guide to keep things even.

The eyes are half way down from the top, the space between the eyes is no wider than the eyes themselves.

The nose is halfway from the eyes to the chin and is no wider than the space between the eyes.

The mouth is halfway from the nose to the chin.

Only the bottoms of the ears show, they are even with the nose.

Very little hair shows, just at the forehead and behind the neck.

Her neck is not wide; it starts just where the jaw curves in a little below the ears.

The hat is floppy, it has a band with small ruffles around the face and large folds above.  It has a ribbon tied under the chin.

Keep the features simple. Draw the upper eyelids as an arch. Draw the upper lip as a shadow. The nose is like two dashes with curves on each side.

Use shading to give the face soft roundness. Avoid extra lines since they will make her look old.
