My process this week was very simple: Draw a figure using the same pose from different angles. It’s an old artist’s trick to get the most out of your model. I drew very fast, taking about seven minutes per drawing. For me, the action doesn’t stop once the pencil is down. After I blocked everything in, I needed to figure out how to take it to the next level. This week, I really wanted to maintain the simplicity and decided to focus on capturing the head in a square format. I used three colors, one neutral and two complements, yellow-green and red-orange (OK, so not exact complements, but close). These drawings are 7×7 but have a grand sense of scale, a little reminiscent of Pop Art. The bold colors and the layout of the images help make the compositions feel larger than they are. These aren’t exactly portraits, more like advanced studies that work well together.
