I am trying to do faces and think more about the composition of the page. I used to just draw a figure and leave it on the page with no thought of the background. And when I did draw something I usually did not go in after that and fix it. So I am beginning to move forward in doing both.
This on is the first one in my new book. Its also the first picture that I did try and unify the figure and the background.
I made my first bigger journal with hotpress watercolour paper and coldpress paper with some covered in gesso. I love the cover and the texture of the paper.
I know the face is not great but I am not working from a reference and not very good at doing faces anyway. Practice, practice, practice.
