After the initial drawing, the rest was just fun. I wanted to go a little messy as a counterpoint to the careful graphite drawing. I'm liking what I see, and might print it onto printer-fabric and make some kind of a hand stitched composition with it.
This was just a face I saw in a magazine that spoke to me. I could see peace, mystery, knowing, and all kinds of things that made me feel good. The process of drawing and laying down some washes was a pleasure - I had no purpose in mind other than drawing the face. It's not quite done yet, but I'll post the next steps.
