April, 2012

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.
