Intrigue and Inquiry
Another face! This time using Faber Castell Pitt Pens of varying sizes. I'm still not certain what's behind these faces, but there is something there that intrigues me. They're very mask like, and I enjoy playing with the shapes and the textures. Thoughts of the "wise man" or the "sage" come to mind, and many of the faces have a sense of calm and a slight smile. I'll keep exploring these faces until I can discover their meaning for me. I am a firm believer that we need to pay attention to the things that keep popping up in our work. These make perfect subjects for our lines of inquiry.
I've only done some small pieces, and this one is merely an experiment on cheap drawing paper to try out the pens. But, I definitely think larger works need to happen.
