Another drawing started – such a test of patience working on this hair! If only I’d paid more attention at art school, instead of spending so much time just looking at art. Working with layers of pencil and sumi ink on this one. Using a flat, dry brush seems to help, adding texture without trying to go in and draw each individual hair.
Also thinking of how nice it would be if I could grow out my hair for once. I’m tired of looking like a boy, for now.
Here’s a current project: a drawing around 18×24″ in pencil and ink. I’m at a wall, wondering whether or not to incorporate color, some fabric flower collage, or something I haven’t yet thought of. The drawing was a struggle: even though there isn’t much information there, I must have drawn and erased the face at least six times! I think I’ll set this away where I can’t look at it for a few days, and come back with new eyes to see what I’m missing now, but thought I’d post these – if you have any feedback, I’d love to hear it – I certainly need it!
Been drawing like crazy in preparation for an art show in Denver coming up here in a couple of weeks! These girls are penciled, inked and glued onto cardboard, ready to be introduced to some lovely insects and shadow boxes.
