50/50 #14

50/50 (14)

This one is torn tyvek on paper, then painted.  The ink drawing was put on top.  Today I drew 5 more faces on 5 boards.  This project is humming along.  Mostly I am drawing with the coffee stirrer stick and carbon ink which is very rich and black, also permanent.  Some of the surfaces don't take to the stick very well, so then I switch to the Cheap Joe's Lizard's lick #4.  For me, this is the best brush for drawing.  I couldn't get along without it.

I am always awed by the character in the faces you paint, Myrna. I so can't wait to see all of these together!

Thanks, Sherry. I laid them all out on the floor yesterday to get a sense of how the whole thing will look. Lots more drawings to do but I am getting excited!

Good noticing Kay!! Yes, it is the infamous husband, Jerry.

Thanks, Cory. They each come out differently. I just draw without any actual expression in mind. Any slight shift creates a different expression.
