|Percy ..... and er ..... Percy|
This is one of my coffee-break scribble doodles. I often doodle with my eyes closed, not thinking about the details of a sketch, just saying in my mind 'face, face'. When I look at it I can invariably see a face shape somewhere in the scribble.
Yes, nutty I know, but try it yourself. It works for me, baby. In fact what I saw today were two faces, most unexpected. Picasso is probably grinding his teeth with envy up there in heaven.
I didn't think of scanning the sketch until I had inked in the outlines of the lines I wanted to use, drawing almost exactly on the original lines.
I scanned the image at that point. If you look carefully you can faintly see the unused original lines which I erased so that I could colour the face with watercolour. I added a red surround using Inktense Watercolour Pencil to get a varied effect, and a frame put round on Photoshop.
Just right for Day 4 of 29 FACES. I love Percy ... and er ... Percy, and would go on a date with them any time.
