Today I thought I'd throw caution to the wind and go straight for it with a marker pen. It's like working without a safety net. Once the line is there, it's there and I have to live with it or start again. I promised myself that I would just live with it.
This is a self-portrait which doesn't actually look all that much like me due to misplaced lines that I had to live with:) It's based on a photo put through Photoshop, made black and white, and simplified using the cutout filter. Only two shades were used - grey and black. The other colours are showing through from the brayered and stencilled background.
I think I'm pleased with it in terms of process rather than results. I had to be bold about placing lines. There were no pencilled outlines, honestly! I can feel myself stretching already :)
