29 Faces: Day 4
I've been good (so far ;) and have kept up with my daily sketching for 29 Faces. It's been quite a challenge - some nights easier (and much longer) than others - but in the spirit of growth, I put on my big girl panties and did it anyway. . . .
My goal is to really stretch myself, to try new things, explore new angles and learn new techniques. I've dug out my old art books (you know, the kind weigh more than a newborn) and have been studying some of the masters. On nights when I feel really brave, I've tried to copy their portraits and emulate their style. On nights when I feel like playing more, I've gone in my own direction. But each time, I try to do something that I haven't done before.
Here's what I've come up with so far:
Inspired by "Head of a Woman" (Portrait of Genevieve) by Pablo Picasso, 1903
Trying angular shapes here, and going for the high ponytail.
Going for a loose strokes and a vintage feel
Trying to be looser yet. Really wanting to be more spontaneous
Inspired by Michelangelo's "The Delphic Sibyl" from the Sistine Chapel
Last night's efforts. Trying out short hair
Whew. Only 19 left to go . . . .
I guess I better get on it,
