Actually I’m inside, not outside, but Oregon has just experienced the wettest March on record! What a lovely record!!! Since it won’t stop raining and we are stuck inside, I’ve been playing.
Recently, I’ve seen some great portraits people have been doing. I don’t really love to draw (and portraits require some drawing)….it’s a lot like work, sometimes. Lots of things are easier….but if you want your art to get better, sometimes you just have to do the hard stuff.
So, I decided to make it fun…..I drew this kinda, sorta, looks like me sketch….
and made a copy, then drew and painted over it!
The pink hair isn’t too bad but I’m not too sure about the big black nose!
This one I tried a brush pen, a fine tip pen, watercolor painting the negative spaces and most fun of all, oil pastels.
For those of you who are now convinced I have lost my marbles…these are cool little exercises in drawing free-style. Not to be taken seriously but great little practice pieces.
Now, I’m going to try drawing with my left hand. Who said drawing wasn’t fun!
