Faces # 18 and 19, Sketchbook pages

I drew the continuous line drawings for these faces about a week ago, then painted them the last couple of days.  # 18 on the right, Blue Woman, was a laborious painting during a bad night.  I like the way she FINALLY turned out, but I didn’t like how much I had to work and re-work her.  I was cut-off from my flow, and I felt it.  But doing the blue side opened a bit of flow for the red side, which came more easily and also, fittingly enough, represents more of how I was feeling.  I think I was afraid to let it out in my art, so I tried to make the blue woman pretty, but when I started painting the red woman, I saw my feelings manifest in the paint.  It happened, like the best art always does, rather than me making it.  I like her.  These are done on the Sketchbook Project pages I hand-tore to size and will go in the Sketchbook:

  1. Blue Woman is beautiful. But I’d rather look at the red one. She’s fascinating and makes me think and feel more. They’re both amazing in different ways.
