Last week’s Let’s Face It lesson was taken by Kara Bullock. The focus of the lesson was on rendering flesh tones in tones of grey and then introducing a pop of a single colour. Again wanting to meld the lesson content with my own illustrative style, I drew from my imagination rather than using any reference material. In doing so, I notice that my faces all tend to look pretty similar. I am not sure whether that is a good thing or not: does it signify that I have a strong style or does it indicate that I am stuck in a rut? I chose yellow for my contrasting colour. I thought it would complement the grey and add brightness to a painting that is otherwise very dark. I find it difficult to resist metallics so I introduced some gold elements in the headpiece and around the neckline. I enjoyed rendering the face in monochrome but I definitely need to work on making the faces I draw more varied.
