This colorful abstract drawing of a woman’s profile was sketched with markers and white acrylic paint. Thin blue pen lines were initially used to sketch in her profile. Layers of blue and black marker where then used to fill in patterns and shapes in and around the woman’s face. Sometimes the shapes indicate shadows, or define contour, or they are just expressive mark making that affects the composition of the art. White acrylic paint was used to add hot spots and highlights. In some areas of the drawing, the black marker started to fade out while blocking in thick lines, which also adds to the rough unfinished feeling in the art. And the portrait drawing is honest in its mistakes and successes, from the boldness of the initial sketch to the transparency of the finished drawing.
