Man – 30 December 2010

Man - 30 December 2010 - India ink and watercolor on paper, 6"x4"

I am very happy with this one… feel like I really tweaked the face, but it’s still immediately readable as a face. I like that the lines of the edge of the nostril becomes one of the lines of the brow… and the line of the septum/lip becomes the top of the head.

This has a second (less successful) piece that kinda goes with it – which I will post shortly. Later: here it is.

I used to do a lot of these kinds of playing around with faces and figures (in the late 1990s and early 00s) but haven’t played like this so much lately.
