I work as an Artist because I am interested in Real Art. I hope my visions will Stop you in your tracks ~ will affect you because you saw my interpretation.

We have cameras. We have real people and real flowers and real landscapes. No need for an Artist to make a 'Realistic' picture. The Artist should have something to Say about what she's seeing. The picture should Speak to the Audience.

I don't want to end my day

Posted Mar 2016

Sometimes I just stay up all night drawing pictures. Painting. Playing Wordgames. Watching TV. Even doing some Officework. Sometimes.

Here it is 2 am. I'm still drawing Caricatures. Isn't she cute?

I don't usually study Caricatures at the same time as I'm studying Face Painting, but here I am ~ It just happened.

I usually make a quick symbolic hint of features to dream up my Face Paintings. But this time, I gave a little extra effort to the face-base. Curious about what happens when I shift the iris of the eye up, down, or to the side..... so many different placements and each one hints at a different character.

These iris placements would give different expressions on different eye-bases too. That's something else I dream about. Since I am choosing just One Expression for Caricaturing the person who is sitting in front of me, it's not like tracing shapes, not like a copy machine. Each decision that I make about placement and pressure make big differences in catching that expression.

In this case, I determined that if the iris is:

high, it looks sleepy

centered, it looks suspicious

a little bit Partway at the top, it looks the way a person normally looks when s/he is just looking around.

a little bit Partway at the bottom, it looks surpised (but i think i remember that completely at the bottom is too much)
