A couple more sketches from my 'face in a crowd' sketchbook for the Arthouse Sketchbook Project 2011. The last few pages were about not wanting to be seen and hiding your face, these pages are about the faces we often don't see.
I did both of these drawings on very rough, lightweight paper. It was difficult to get a lot of detail but my coloured pencils felt almost like pastels, very smudgy as they skipped over the ridges and valleys! It was difficult to keep a point too as the paper eats the pencil.
p.s The vertical lines through the first drawing were made by my scanner not me!
