I am sitting here with a nice hot bowl of oat meal. It is still cold but not as bad as the freeze we had last week. So the oat meal is a nice soothing breakfast. OK... I am rambling because the art I have to show is....well....you will see. LOL
Each of us have our own formulas for creating art. For me when I draw a face I draw the outline of the face, add what will be hair, then see where the features will go in. It is all line work at first. I normally start with the nose. For me that is the center of the face and will give my the guidelines for the mouth and eyes. So that is how this face started. However, something went terrible wrong after the nose went in. I was loving how the mouth was turning out. Full lips, a bit of an opening, and the shading was coming along just fine. However I never looked up from the paper. I never took notice of where the mouth was or how it measured to the eyes. When I did look up and held the paper away from me I saw that I was totally off. OMG! Really? So the lesson for today is.... look up and "see" your art as you are creating.
Laugh with or at your art. It makes creating more enjoyable.
Honor and integrity in art, in life.
