Well, I am seeing phantoms again. Here I have uploaded two of my recent works created on fabric using colored pencils and Pitt artist pens. In case you are wondering, I did find the pattern in the fabric and used that as the foundation for the faces. The Pitt pens are used to do the black areas and I use a brown one to add darker areas too. This first piece I call Hair Fire.
This one is inspired by two faces that I saw. I call it dual personality as it represents our common self and the idea of a higher or more spiritual side. The fabric was some hand dyed I received in a swap a number of years back. I wish I could remember whose fabric this is as it is really beautiful.
On a related note, this process is giving me more of a push to do some drawing again. I find this type of work a little bit of cheating since I already have the beginning of it provided for me. I just go in and fill in the blanks and add the details. But, seeing my doodles again made me realize how much I miss the process of drawing. It is funny how drawing, sculpting and painting all have very blissful feelings for me. It is a good thing.
