Sketchbook Project 2011, pages 14 and 15

Pen and coloured pencil


Another two pages added to my sketch book for the Sketchbook Project 2011.  My theme is 'a face in the crowd'.   These two pages depict how we can hide our faces, a balaclava and sunglasses to start with.

Graphite and coloured pencil


The girl who modelled the sunglasses is actually my beautiful daughter and I quite like this drawing, I'm tempted to keep it!  But nooo I'll do another one that I'll like even more!
The next pages will also be hidden faces or masks...I'm on a roll!

Your daughter is gorgeous!! The figure in the balaclava is very disturbing - which is a testament to your ability!!

Love the reflections on the sunglasses! That's the inspired difference between just a drawing and a piece of art.

Aaah, wonderful, simply wonderful (am I repeating myself here?!)!! The details, like the knitting of the balaclava and the reflections in the sunglasses... <3

When you draw with graphite, do you use some kind of fixative?

kazumiwannabe said...

Thanks for your response (and nice comment) on my blog! That's what I'm thinking at the moment, too (as I'm using pencil and colored pencils and the paper is rather smooth): will it "survive" the project (and all the handling)? But then, I've got no idea how many people actually will look at the individual books.

What a beautiful model. She is not just another face in a crowd, but a head-turner.

High-quality work here. The first one scared me a bit when I first opened this page. :) Looking forward to more faces.
