|day 10, 11|
It may seem as if I pulled a disappearing act - but I was away for a few days last week. I continued to play with faces - but had no opportunity to post. Quick descriptive comments:
day 15 - Another little lady on an ATC - If you enlarge her you will see the tiny swarovski crystals on her headband.
day 14 - was admiring Modigliani's work and decided to (unsuccessfully) try to paint a lady in that style. What I got was a Grant Wood caricature of a Grant Wood painting. Oh well - I'll try again.
day 13 - a face I started long ago and found in my sketchbook less than half done. I finished the hair and put in the features (fairly funky features if I do say so) and applied some Pan Pastels.
day 12 - saw this child's picture in a newspaper when I was away. I really need work on young children's faces and I actually tore out the picture but lost it. I didn't quite finish the mouth but it was a pretty good likeness (you'll have to take my word for it)
day 11, 10 - my grandson was watching Pokemon on TV and I decided to quick sketch the faces I saw to see what made them work (show emotion, etc). Finished the coloring and hair over the next 2 days.
day 9 - the day before VBS started this past summer, I was asked to create a life-size Jesus for the program. Well, needless to say, it was a real rush job. It was hung high up on a wall but after VBS was done my friend said he wanted to hang it in the children's area. I took it home against his protests (it looks fine) to just fix up a bit - his skin was pretty green and his mouth was completely wrong. Hanging in on a low wall - well I didn't want him to scare the wee ones. Not nearly complete in my eyes but not scary and I didn't feel like starting over.
Thant was the week and a half that was - sorry for so many images in one post. Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed and art filled day.
