A Face in the Crowd

Graphite, pen and coloured pencil

The next two pages on my sketchbook for the Sketchbook Project.  Still going with the theme 'a face in the crowd', here are some more ways to hide your face.  The most simple of all....just cover your face with your hands.  Then if you're shy or don't want to be seen, you could try standing in the shadows.


Pen amd coloured/watercolour pencil

There's a lot of black pencil over watercolour pencil on this one, so I'm hoping it's not going to smudge.
I will leave the page opposite blank so that if any black  does come off it doesn't ruin the next picture.

If you want to know what the Sketchbook  Project is all about see here for an explanation and first pages.

I like these drawings, they are unusually dark if compared with many of your works that are so colourful and bright most of the times! This gives even more emphasis to the sense of mystery and secrecy of your characters, hiding their faces, who knows why...

These are great. You might want to spray fixative on the black pencil sketch to prevent smudging and put in a piece of newsprint to absorb any moisture between those two pages.

These two sketches are so mysterious! And very very good.

That second picture is even scarier than the figure in the balaclava. Fabulous work!!

What a wonderful series you've got going here, Cathy! Very different take on a "face in the crowd", and each sketch is either very unique or mysterious. Definitely a coffee table conversation starter book!

Yes, I love the lady, too. I also love how creative and witty you're being with the topic! nancy
