Abstract Drawings and Paintings of Black and White Faces

These are drawings and paintings of abstract faces. The 9″x12″ artworks use black and white colors from a variety of mediums, including Pens, Paint Pens, Watercolors, Oil Pastels, Markers, and Acrylic Paint. Each artwork has multiple layers of medium which adds depth to the faces. Alternating patterns of light and dark values resemble highlights and shadows. I drew them based on subtleties in the emotions of anger, despondence, frustration, empathy, and a bit of hope.

    I used a few different kinds of mediums, mostly varying widths of Sharpie®, occasionally Prismacolor®, but there is also some Crayola® oil pastels and watercolors.
