On this lovely (partly-sunny, partly-cloudy...The usual weather) Memorial Day, I decided to add to my sketchbook during my brief break from studying for finals (I spent nearly four hours at Starbucks this morning-AHH!).
I feel like I've done too many charcoal portraits lately, because when I went over my art website I noticed that the last few pieces looked waaayyy too similar. Therefore, I decided this time to try something new and get out of my comfort zone. ;)
I usually enjoy drawing realistic looking portraits with just one or two media (charcoal..or charcoal with watercolor), but this time I used three media (charcoal, watercolor, pastel) while I used a picture I found online to venture somewhat on the middle ground between naturalistic and abstract.
My favorite part about making this piece was having fun with all the bright colors!
I hope you enjoy it!
