I found a picture of an exotic and beautiful model in one of my daughter's magazines. She was obviously of very mixed ethnicity and I loved her facial structure. Well - this was my third attempt. It was a difficult angle and
I didn't want her very abundant dark hair in the drawing-not as successful as I would have liked. I think I will try her again - she has such an interesting and changeable face - she looked very different at every angle. I used pen, Copic markers, Pan Pastels. I am linking to Artist's Play Room (here), Summer of Color (here) and Paint Party Friday (here).
The pencil sketch is of my grandson's karate instructor. The man I was sitting next to asked my why I didn't draw the instructor instead of the doodle I was doing - at first I thought I can't do that. He's too far away, he's moving around and I'm not very good at those quickie sketches. However, this sketch really pleased me - I definitely captured him - even if it's not a very "active" and alive sketch. I'll have to work on that. I really enjoyed doing the sketch quickly - took a lot of the pressure off.
Thanks for stopping by - leave a comment if you have time. Have a blessed and art filled weekend.
