I guess I did more philosophizing about the make-up of the human face than drawing it this time. I’ve been getting interested in matching the formal attributes of writing, like Cy Twombly, with those of my looser drawings.

I’m getting better at drawing faces, even if I did draw the mouth of the woman on the right too deep, making her look a bit like Jack Nicholson’s Joker. Sorry, ma’am, but a few months ago you would have looked more like a “Simpsons” character. Trust me, this is better.
Got my sketchbook out finally to practice some faces. Ugh. The guy on the bottom right is the only one I really care for, and maybe the guy on the top, 2nd from the left. I used normal pencils, then sepia’d the image. (Rob’s flickr site.)
drawing some faces today. (blog link)
working on faces, my favorite things to draw, paint and study.
sorry for the distortion – I can’t get the book to lay flat because the pages are so thick. Any suggestions?
