Am I Blue?
Thursday, July 15th, 2010
This is another piece done using S as a reference, I think off one of the photos I took of him. I swear I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to draw people from below without it becoming all about their nostrils, heh. This was also a practice in not-quite-monochrome, using only various shades of blue, from blue-violet hair to blue-green lips to soft powder blue skin. The darkest shadows are the only true black.
This piece is done with soft chalk pastels on a thick bristol board, and really ought to be framed. I’m sure I’ll get to it one of these days!
