I have been drawing and painting lots of faces. This one is from a photo reference. First I did the colour one and then went back and did the pencil sketch and took more time. Its amazing how you can get such different results from the same model.
All the rest are faces just from my imagination. On the left is an ink sketch with my non dominant hand and on the right is done with one continuous line and then I watercoloured and also added pan pastel.
Java Joe started off with coffee rings, then I wrote Java Joe in walnut in and then sprayed the page with water and added the teal watercolour and let it dry. Next I drew the face and then added the Java Joe lettering back on the top this time and highlighted some areas with walnut ink.
She is watercolours and pan pastels.
The cool dude is now in a magical forest.
Ink dauber faces.
I don't know where she came from but she doesn't look very happy. Pen and Acrylic ink.
Jack and Jill started off as ink dauber faces and then had all sorts of transformations. Black gesso, bottle circles of acrylic paint, crayon, pan pastels, watercolours, gel pen.
The artist is a copy of a little comic strip guy. Then he needed a reason so say Sacreblue! :) She is stamped and her hair inked and the rest watercoloured.
A few more shots around the yard. My wind chimes weren't making any noise as they were frozen together.
