This is a 9″x12″ abstract drawing of a face with a determined expression. The character’s face was drawn with pens, paint pens, oil pastels, and markers. The artwork is expressive and colorful, with contrasting warm and cool colors used to set apart the eyes, nose, mouth, and some skin surfaces from the surrounding chaos.

An accompanying video shows how I draw the abstract face in a time lapse format. The initial composition of the face was sketched with pen first, followed by layers of color and highlights.

    Hi Michael.
    VERY STRONG IMAGE! Wow. Kind of Master Mikely -only not as ugly! I love watching your video of the creation (and could see your pretty gold wedding band. )
