And now I have found enough courage and audacity to come to the foot of the highest mountain in my art study landscape: portraits. Human faces, face expression, men's and women's faces, aging faces, emotions, the list is endless, the mounting is Everest high.
Fast sketch in my sketchbook (I feel best when do work in one session, without interruption in mood and paint flow).
Feels strange to see that somebody unknown starts looking at you from the sketchbook page..
That was interesting! My first experience with drawing with kneaded eraser (soft and obedient kind of graphite eraser) on the paper toned with pencil graphite dust. I had to pull light from the dark background.
Quick sketch to show that at last I can use the green color for window view. The spring is here!
About "Visit Norway" competition. I have won a T-shirt, he-he-he.
The winner created a website with map of attractions and ideas for the journey. This is the link to the site - modern, easy and energetic presentation. http://potronys2.wix.com/gotonorway True winner.
This is the final view of the poster, which fate will be decided tomorrow.
I used the photos of my drawings and arranged them in Photoshop, adding text in different fonts, adding Norwegian ornament for the background.
Nice experience. My first illustration and design experience.
