Is it totally narcissistic to be in love with your own work? (Probably)
But I really adore these girls. Once they're done they take on a life of their own and I feel completely disconnected from the creation process. It's like I'm looking at someone else's work.
Anyway, I'm right into this half done look now. I just love the way it makes the eyes really pop out. And the focus is on the hands and the face which is really what portraiture is about.
So this is tonight's darling - Lola.
It's really quite tricky to get the dark areas just dark enough to give her a decent contrast without tearing into the cardboard. I'd like to see how this works on a different material, but I'm still considering what that may be!
Anyway, that's enough for tonight. It's my birthday tomorrow and I think it's time to stop working!
