So yesterday was Ben’s day at class, and I had a whole night to myself– it’s amazing how much I get done in one night because I feel like I get nothing done the rest of the week. This week I got out my ink and pastels and created three lovely ladies that I sort of hate right now, but what else is new?
So here’s a shot of all three:
I was regretting using so much ink on some of them, and the one in the middle is definitely my favorite. I just can’t decide whether to go back into them with acrylic paint or not.
Here’s Clara. She’s the one I’m most happy with:
She feels the most done. Here’s Norma, who I feel is a little awkward. She also has some ink problems on her face, but the rest of the piece I really like.
And here’s Katherine. I really like her, but I think she has hand/ arm issues that I will have to address.
Not bad for a night’s work- Ink and pastel was really interesting to use together. Usually I just use charcoal and ink together, but I felt like I needed some color in my life. I like these girls, but I felt really rust when I started out (sorry Norma!).
