I felt like I hadn't done anything all day (except for chores.)
I decided I was going to draw a face. I hadn't done a face in a long time.
I found an ad to copy, in a fashion magazine here at the hospital:
Recently I've been experimenting with Impasto tools.
I started out with a sketch in a colored background using one of the Impasto tools.
I didn't look at it closely until now.
It has some kind of rose pattern! Must have been Pattern Emboss, or something.
I added details using some kind of bristle Impasto:
That effect was kind of painterly, maybe do something in that direction another day.
Next I used an Impasto tool called Depth Lofter. It worked like a collagen injection!
After that I smeared and raised and lowered the depth of the Impasto using the Depth Eraser and Depth Smear.
I didn't use a lot of the Gloopy Impasto tool that I used on the flowers yesterday.
A little in the hair.
The proportions are off, especially the nose.
I need to work on getting it right the first time. Slacking off on life drawing...
An easy fix would be to Smear and smush everything into the right place.
Anyway, I have to get up early tomorrow, (Today) because I want to be here at the hospital when they move Mom.
