SO many drawings tonight, and so many revisions! This is one of the faces I rendered, which shortly after I prepped for posting on the blog, I retooled completely. I realize my process involves painting everything to full-rendered perfection, and then realizing that that look is dated and oh so very Vogue Patterns, so I then go back and erase portions and make it more unfinished and contemporary. But this is before I retooled. I've not painted a black woman in my new digital techniques, in croquis mode, so I wasn't sure how to render the skin tone in a way consistent with the way I render white girls in watercolor. It took over an hour to get right!
