We are successfully dug out of the snowstorm here in NY. It was a doosey! And it could have been worse. I am grateful that we are all safe. I am hoping all of my artist friends here in the northeast faired as well with all the snow!
I have been getting back to some face sketching as I am in the midst of a love affair with abstract painting. Misty Mawn has a new online course going on right now called "Face To Face". If you have never taken a class with Misty I recommend it! You will not be disappointed! I took her class last year and it was great as is this one! She packs so much in the class it is hard to keep up!
I created this girl using a sgraffito technique. Scratching is something I am loving these days, making marks in paint and now marks in oil pastel. I had a pack of portfolio pastels that I had not yet used so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to break them out. This was done on white pastel over black acrylic. I am trying to continue to let go of wanting to be perfect. So I do like this girl's face imperfections and all.
