Karin Jurick and her "100 Faces BUST-ED" project are huge inspiration source for me. Her work gave me the courage to draw and paint my first faces at the times of "Different Strokes". And she inspires me two years later.
I was cherishing an idea of portraits for several months, started today and would report about the results here.
My uncle's huge photo-journalist archive provides a lot of faces material. And there is no fear that the models will recognize themselves, at least for the nearest projects)).
I did this piece on craft paper with oil pastels in 3 hours from photo reference. Tell me what you think about it.
Did not draw anything in 2 weeks (business got all the time) and it felt so wrong. Please do not think that I forgot your talented blogs, I will be back soon. I promise.
