FRIDAY 14 FEBRUARY - FACE NO 14
|'TIME TO BREAK THE RULES|
Sketch and Collage by Jez
Definitely way out of my comfort zone, but I was so excited thinking about it all the time and how I could approach it. Having looked at Anna Higgie's work on the net, I shut my mind away from her images as completely as possible so that I could do something that was my own, not a poor copy. For a start I decided on a male face instead of a female face.
Searching through magazines for black and white patterns turned up very little, just about enough to create this sketch/collage. Since I'd like to do more of these I had better start collecting for future efforts. I was lucky to find the words jump out at me from one magazine, and I'm always happy to be working in my favourite 'colours' of black, white and red.
The most difficult point for me was when I had drawn a face I was happy with ….. and then having to do something to mess it up, but having done it once I shall be able to do it more easily next time.

Hello dear Jez!ReplyDelete
I can tell you!
I LOVE THEM ALL!
such fan - expressive art
hugs and happy weekend!
Oh Jez, your drawing ability is awesome!!! I can't draw at all!! :( Your Anna Higgie piece turned out as good...if not better...than her own pieces. Your comfort zone IS extensive! :) Your other drawings are so well done as well. I especially love Oliver (your Sunday drawing)...striking...and your last drawing, too!! All are great, though! xoxoxReplyDelete
Good jobs and elaborate, the latter almost seems Picasso but carried a lot. SaludosReplyDelete
Fantastic faces! I have to say that I'm in love with the Picasso like one at the bottom. So well done and cool looking. It's really a show stopper! Super shading, super design = awesome!ReplyDelete
Jez, I see I missed a couple of your fantastic, diverse faces this week. I like your black and white pieces, especially the man in the bowler and your new black and white collage. I also like the woman whose face has turned past profile. What an achievement to pull that off so well!ReplyDelete
It pleases me no end when I hear one of our challenges was inspiring to one of our participating artists. I LOVE your male black and white entry (and ALL your faces), Jez. Thank you for sharing the journey of creation with us!ReplyDelete
All of these pieces are fabulous. Great way to break the rules.ReplyDelete
what a great art week you've had! I love how you were inspired to create your black, white and red piece-fabulous composition, and my favorite in this post.ReplyDelete
Incredible faces!! I especially love that fabulous black and white collage...thanks for sharing all these fun pieces!ReplyDelete
Your faces are all so different and wonderful. Love the black and white collageReplyDelete
What wonderful faces! The last one is my absolute favorite - so unique and boldly painted! It just exudes confidence :)ReplyDelete
I am so impressed by the variety and creativity of your works this week. It's great you summarized them in this post. My very favorite are the new-bizantine figures, so rich and expressive. :)ReplyDelete
Oh Jez, so much I'd missed already this week! I'm glad you're doing a weekly overview :-)ReplyDelete
Love the variety of faces you made. Thanks for sharing the link to the work of Annie Higgie. Love her work, and I love your version of it too. And the Picasso-ish face is another favorite!
Gorgeous work in black and white, Jez. So much else of interest too. Bravo.ReplyDelete
Oh, great job on all the faces. I love the latest one!ReplyDelete
Jez Thursdays face is my favourite. I think because I like wonky things. Also The collage at the top is a wonderful way to push oneself. I like messing up faces so I would not have a problem trying that out. I always say to myself it can only go better and that really makes me get into it. Thanks for sharing at Paper Saturdays.ReplyDelete
i commend you for stepping outside of your comfort zone. your male face and collage turned out wonderfully...and look at all of the work you have produced this week!ReplyDelete
really love your work, particularly the black and white.ReplyDelete

I agree, sort of Picasso for the last one. I like them all, very creative. Blessings, Janet PPFReplyDelete
