Brush Test2017


For this portrait I decided to skip preliminary pencil sketching and go straight to ink. I did this to challenge my abilities in freehand drawing while maintaining natural proportions. As an artist I believe that experimentation is imperative in any part of the creative process to foster growth. By committing to lines using ink and embracing the flaws that have been made, I learnt that some of the simplest mistakes can create interesting compositions.
