DECISIONS, DECISIONS!





These are the drawings I did today in preparation for a new painting.  I may create a series out of this idea.  Now I have to decide how I am going to combine these images into a composition.  How many people? What shape and size will the paper be?  These are just a few of the considerations. The last drawing is the beginning of the search for an interesting solution.  Hopefully, tomorrow's drawings will reveal a few answers.

Fabulous line drawings. I can see it as another one of your bozzettos with the single, double finally multiple faces all on the same sheet. Wonderful.

I, too, love the first one! I think the hands are especially interesting in this group. Super sketches!

Hi Jane, now I have to figure out who's talking to whom.

Myrna Wacknov said...

Hi Dee! I was lucky to get such a good shot of this woman. Thanks for the comment.

Hi Shalini, Thanks for the comment. Love your caricatures. Check out Caricaturama 3000 on facebook. You could join in the fun!

Hi Bridget! Line is one of my favorite elements to work with.

Myrna Wacknov said...

Hi Jill. Thanks for the vote of confidence. These faces could be done lots of different ways. I shall explore their potential.

Hi Supermom! Yes, the hands are an important element for this grouping. Sadly, arthritis twists the joints into interesting shapes to draw but very painful to live with.
