FACES 25 AND 26 - BLACK ON WHITE, AND WHITE ON BLACK
For Martha's 29 FACES during this month of September, we were challenged to create 29 faces in 28 days, so today I am posting two faces to make sure I get the extra day's face in within the 28 days.
Edwain, the young chap above combines the idea of how much information is needed to make it recognisable as a face, which I have mentioned before, and the effects of strong light and shadow.
Both faces were created very quickly on Monday morning, having to get them done hastily because we have a couple of clinic days this week for Dev. Edwain was drawn with a black pen, and the black shadows and grey stripes added digitally, time being precious.
Here's my second face of the day:
|Franz Ferdinand - known by his friends as FF|

I'll say one good thing about this challenge, it has certainly speeded me up. Neither of these faces is marvellous and I'm only barely satisfied with them, but Martha encouraged us to post our work whether it was unsatisfactory to us or even unfinished. The challenge has made me braver to put up for public view pieces of artwork that would normally be hidden under the pile of drawings to be kept from anyone else's eyes. Thank you Martha.
