faces

Lately I have been filling pages of my sketchbook with faces.
I'm just copying faces I see on TV.

At first I drew some black and white faces with ink.



This was around the time Mom passed away.

I finally used up the last pages of a cheap sketchbook.
I had it for almost a year.
I wasn't drawing much and it didn't help that the paper was thin.

My next sketchbook has mixed-media paper, so it can take paint.

I sketched a face with a waxy highlighter, and then painted a wet wash of watercolor on the whole page.


I liked the effect so much, I just kept doing more.


I like how it kind of looks like a photo negative.





I'm on a roll, now!
