For this I had to get a stick and some ink and draw. There was a couple of problems with this. one there was no ink in the studio and two i forgot to get a stick.
Instead I decided to use watered down acrylic and 4 paintbrushes tasked together with masking tape.
My Paint Brush….
First And Second (Stick And Acrylic)…..
The side on face was my first drawing, These are both 5 mins long each. At first this was my attempt on how I could use the stick and paint and trying to see how it would move on the paper. The second Drawing (one facing straight on) is so much better and a lot more confident. I really like the second one as I feel it had better features and better structure.
My Third Drawing (Paint Brushes Taped On My Fingers )…..
This was the third drawing I did. The marks on the face where not ament to be there. They are from wet paint on the bother page. To be able to create this painting I taped two paintbrushes to my fingers and then painted.
I like this piece as I manged to get a lot more done on a bigger scale. I do think if I took my time more I could have been able to do a lot better. I do like the shape of the face though and how I have done the hair and also added the shading to the hair. so I used this technique in to my other drawings.
My Forth Drawing (with two paint brushes taped on my fingers)…..
This was also painted with two paint brushes taped onto my fingers. I did this a lot faster than the first one so it ended up looking like a potato. This is due to the headspace being off by the jaw and also not realistic. I feel like I didn’t care for this one as much.
I feel I could spend more time on the face shape and then start to go in with the eyes and hair to get a better portion and look for the person.
My Fifth Drawing ( Two Paint Brushes Taped Together)…..
This was another painting that I did with the paint brushes taped together. I do like the idea of this as I like the look that it gave off with the two different lines. To improve this I could use to colours and have the different colours on each brush so when they cross they would change colours.
One of my best things on this paintings is the texture of the hair and how having the different brushes loaded with paint would leave the lines and the texture.
I think form this I would take using the two different colours and also how I manged to do the hair.
Drawing (Using Two Brushes Taped Together And Two Colours)…..
At first I hated this painting. I used the light blue to mark how the facial structures and then I went in with red and then to add even more shadow I mixed the blue and red for a purple.
I do like this piece now as I didn’t really want it to look perfect as I knew it wouldn’t, but I do like the colours within it. I decided to add in the splashes of colour partly because it is easier to draw/paint on a page with something on it. this is because it not as intimidating as a white blank page. Also partly because I dropped paint on it.
I then decided I liked how everything is in this so I wanted to do my next one like this too.
Second Drawing (Paint Brushes Taped Together And Two Colours)…..
I do really like how I did the shading within this painting and how I have done the jumper and nose. I do this the face shape could be improved by making it thinner.
I like the colours I used for the hair but I feel the shape of the front of the hair is two high and not natural, so I could make that a little more flat.
I did find this tasks hard but I did like them. at first I wanted them to all look really good and natural but then after realizing the wont I kind of accept they will look more abstract and this let me enjoy it more and actual do better within it. but I don’t feel like I’m improving I do just feel I’m doing the same thing over and over and not getting better.
