I was looking at a face in a fashion magazine yesterday. I wanted to sketch it but I also wanted to try for a more whimsical effect. I did two sketches with pencil on graph paper, then I went over the lines with my fine Sharpie marker. The ideas seemed to flow from there. I planned to glue the faces into my BOD journal. At first, I was going to paint the faces with acrylic paint…hence, the painted hair. I picked up some Tombow and Crayola markers and colored in a few places. I was experimenting and liked the effects I was getting. The Tombow markers act as watercolors when water is used with them. I used water on the face on the right but not on the left face. I couldn’t decide what kind of background to use but decided to use a doodle grid to echo the squares of the graph paper. The last photo is a doodle page from earlier last week.
