BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD LOOKING FOR INSPIRATION



There was something about this woman's face that appealed to me. She had very expressive hands as well so I managed to get a few good photos to work with. Originally, I was going to combine the interlaced fingers with the more full face view but as I was drawing, I started to like the more profile version better. These are the first drawings. I did three more, starting to stylize and simplify the image more but I am saving them for tomorrow's post.

I am also working on another project. I am scheduled to do a demonstration on the patio of Mistral Restaurant in Redwood Shores on Wednesday, May 6th at 5:30. I have 3 paintings hanging in the restaurant along with some other artists. This is a new kind of promotion for me, so it will be interesting to see what comes from it. I have found that something good always happens when you are willing to try something. Often it is not the result you had anticipated but something totally unexpected.

I like both of these and will definitely look forward to seeing more and what you do with them. (Just catching up after being away a week and it's taking a few days! Whew!)

I love the second drawing! As you said, the hands are so expressive! Can't wait to see your more stylized versions, too.
