Tricks

BECU 6: This woman has a smooth textured face without a lot of “architecture” to work with. And I tend to want to make “perfect” faces perfectly. Which is not the art I want to make. I want to observe closely, learn and respond to what I’m seeing. When I draw from traditionally beautiful faces I seem to change my intentions and only want to get it “right “. I must have an interesting relationship with beautiful people. Hmmm.

Anyway, to trick myself into “seeing” her, I turned the photo upside down. I saw new things! Like a lovely shaped shadow under her chin.
