For this drawing, instead of seperating the colors with carefully drawn shapes, I created an almost hap hazard grid to serve as the windows to the color of the image. Can you see a face? I’ll explain…
This is the final 16″x20″ portrait. I like this burnt coral. It’s both bright and dark. I made a version with black lines and background and white lines and background. This one made the cut. I added those protective watermarks again. I’m not sure what I’m scared of.
I had to make a lot of decisions about which colors to use where.
Here you can see the just grid I created to separate the colors.
Here’s the embarrassing photograph I used as a guide.
