Art Journal Journey
I started this page with spray paints and flower masks. But then, for some reason, I just wanted to put a face on it. I grabbed the nearest thing I had on my desk, which was a stick of water-soluble graphite. With a postcard for reference, I sketched this face. I don't often do men's faces, and I usually just work out of my head, so this was a bit different and fun to do. The postcard had very strong light and shade patterns which worked well with the medium. Once the lines were in place, I ran a wet paintbrush over them.
The images are incongruous, but I don't care :)
The theme this month over at Art Journal Journey is birds, beasts, and humans, so I shall be linking over there.
