I can't recall the last time I tried to paint a face. It was something I enjoyed and then I seemed to just drop it. Not sure why. Possibly out of frustration. I become easily impatient with most things in life and my art is no exception.
Late last night before bed I grabbed a neocolor 2 and quickly sketched out this girl. I added water with a q-tip and smudged the water around, went back in with a little more crayon. My plan is to go back in with some white gesso and see what happens. I kinda like her expression already. I love that she was not planned, she is just what came out of my hand as I sketched.
If I can shut down the critiquing gremlins I may get her done. Something simple, something small, and hopefully something inspiring . . .
