Today was supposed to be my Texture Tuesday post but alas I never got my act together for the challenge this week! Oh well. So I thought instead I would share this sketch I did yesterday.
I was having a bad day yesterday, headachy, not feeling like myself, (again, I know) so I thought about trying to sketch and get my mind off of things.
Lately I have been focusing on sketching realism with my faces but yesterday I thought it would be fun to go back to a more stylized face. And I am glad I did. I like her. Sometimes I get off track with creating what I think I "should" instead of what I truly am drawn to. I wanted to make a pretty face and I think I did!
The idea for her heart hair came after sketching in wavy hair that I hated! lol So as you can probably see I erased that and started putting down hearts.
The words came last that I scribbled up in the right corner. . .
"Her Hair Was Made of Hearts That Fell From The Sky . . . "
I think she will look pretty on a canvas. . .
