Abstract Face Drawing

This is an abstract drawing of a face, created with a variety of mediums. The drawing started by using silver and gold paint pens to scribble down lines. The drawing was kept very loose, and simple twists of silver and gold were used to shape eyes, wrinkles, and abstract patterns around the paper. Once that dried, some deep purple and red watercolor paint was applied to the paper. The silver and gold paint repelled the water, so those lines continue to shine even after numerous layers of watercolor paint were applied. A yellow paint pen was used to brighten up the right side, and a white paint marker was used to add highlights to the face. Lastly some sky blue was added to the eyes, which delicately contrast with the somber tone of the facial expression and warm colors.
