I laughed writing the title to this post! My online class addiction continues! I have lost count at this point of just how many classes I am taking and sometimes I forget. lol I hop around from one to the other taking little bits and pieces from each artist. Somehow that just works for me. And I get tired of slapping myself on the wrist for it.
So, having said all that I was excited to share this new portrait sketch with you. Truly if you asked me to pick one medium that I enjoy the most I would have to say sketching. And sketching faces is my favorite! I recently signed up for my first class with Pam Carriker. I have her book "Art at the Speed of Life" and love it! I refer to it often. Go out and get it! You will not be disappointed! When I found out about her "Pursuing Portraits" online class I just couldn't resist. And it is super affordable too.
I sketched out this portrait using techniques I am learning from Pam. I used watersoluble graphite so I could make her into a watercolor piece (not part of Pam's class) I also used my black sharpie marker to bring out the details which is always fun! This girl is so different than my other faces. And I like that about her. She looks very serious as if there is alot on her mind.
I wonder what she is thinking.
I am sharing this girl today at Paint Party Friday.
