Inking Portraits and an Art Lab
I was invited to join some other local artists for an art lab.
They'll be meeting at the historic Grand Saloon in Bisbee.
Happens to be Bloody Mary Sunday as well.
Good thing I did my exercise beforehand.
We were to choose a picture
as a model for our pieces.
And then apply ink with an eye dropper.
my ink happened to be packaged that way.
( remember my whole box of inks from the garage sale?)
I used watercolor paper.
And blot it with a piece of toilet paper.
And color it if you like.
I used watercolor crayons
They had different personalities.
Sepia marker and watercolor pencil.
Hey, I was painting with an eye dropper, remember!
Circus clown or scullery maid?
( I kind of like this one, actually)
I saved the worst for last
No wonder she looks depressed...
