I'm having a pretty significant flare-up right now and I thought I'd try to combine my current personal challenge of drawing faces with expressing how I'm feeling. This is not a self-portrait but a mood portrait, if that makes any sense.
I hope that unkempt, sad, a little scared and not on her A game came through in her expression and pose.
B. suggested I tinker with her as my mood and pain level changed to have a "living, ongoing expression of my physical state" (LOVE THAT KID! Who says stuff like that?) So I did and here are the results:
This was my first attempt using Pan Pastels and charcoal - neat stuff, very messy though.
I snapped these before journalling on the left hand side because it's personal and before I'm done probably won't be fit for sharing.
Sorry that this week has been all drawings, I have a lot to share (cards, DT assignments, bedroom remodel) but the pictures are in our main computer and walking across the room to it is too big a task right now. Please don't think I'm not going to be blogging all the stuff I normally do. I'm just banged up a bit and if it's not at arm's reach it's out of the question.
Would you all like a peek into B's sketch book? He's been surrounded by anatomy texts and working on skulls and torsos.
this one is trying to do an abstract face like I did for yesterday's post - it's also his first time using charcoal and he's totally hooked on the medium.
