6 more of this challenge - creating a portrait only looking at the person (not my paper) and in a long continuous line. It is fun to look back and find the start and finish points. I am finding what I like and don't like. Doing the challenge daily has not worked and I seem to go in fits and starts, doing 2 or 3 in a sitting, usually trying to catch up.
Coloured pencils and regular felt pens do not work as well, they don't seem to glide well. Fountain pens, gel pens and regular ink ball point pens glide much better. This is important when I am trying to do a portrait blind as the pens do not skip and I lose my observation. Drawing during Zoom calls and photos taken from the TV seem to work well for me. When I am on zoom I take my mic and video off so I am not disturbing anyone with my staring and movement. I have been called out on it a couple of times from art friends!
The more of these I do, the more I enjoy it. What is really entertaining is when I am finished and look at it, I immediately see what I did not do (but thought I had - like the left of Rory's face. Simone had her hair back in a slick tight pony tail and I was delighted to see that I had captured that.
