since sometime ago we've been talking about doing a portrait exchange with Ronell (Africantapestry) she's a fine artist i truly admire, so it's really an honour for me to be working with her in this exchange. finally we sent pics to each other a few days ago. i've started with some sketches to study the shapes, the directions, lights/shadows, etc. later when i have a print in colour of the photos (i have a b&w printer) i'll go to a next step which will be to make some colour versions.I've been working on all the photos she sent me, and here are the sketches I've done up to now.
This one is in watercolour pencil.
This is in liquid ink pen. The funniest about this one is I did it with a flashlight liying on my bed and the electricity had gone out and it was too early for me to sleep.
This has "invented colours" as I haven't printed the photos in colour yet as I said above. I coloured it as I remember the pic on the email and making it up. I made it darker digitally as it is how it should look like.
this one is obviously a sketch in pencil.
Don't forget to visit Ronell's site at: http://africantapestry.wordpress.com/ and check the portraits of me she's been doing as well as all her wonderful work. Also she has a blog about FOOD ( http://myfrenchkitchen.wordpress.com) where you can also spend a good time over there!
Note to Casey, I'm still waiting for YOUR photos! This is not pressure... is it? hahahaha
