Stopped by Muse Art and Design yesterday on Hawthorne Blvd and found Liz Walker doing an Acrylic Demo. I stopped her midsentence and mid painting to snap a pic! Liz is participating in the series,"An Artist Day," to help Art teachers put Art Supplies in the class room. For full details look at this link!
I had no actual reference as I sketched this. My intent was to just practice hatching lines (evenly spaced strokes with the same pressure) to create a random shape of value. I started seeing some facial features so I brought some of that out with an eraser. I did more of the hatching alternating with an eraser till I put in detail in the eyes and mouth. It is really just a doodle; kind of fun when they turn out to look like something! I need to put the iPad down and do more sketching and get ready for getting outdoors.
Watercolor I started this month has some possibilities but may have to crop it because the tall vase got stuck in the middle. Right now it is the darkest object and that has to change. Ill work on it this week.
