Project LV One – Day 189 – When things go wrong they go wrong…

When things go wrong

The title sounds far more dramatic than things actually were but as you can see I somewhat screwed up the proportions of this life drawing I was making this morning.  I have written before about internal contradictions in any drawing or painting.  Sometimes you are able to get away with things and then others it just becomes too much.  This is a case in point – I just didn’t get the proportions correct and then the more I tried to correct it the more they got away from me.  Ce la vie.

Face of Leicester No 2

The one good thing about the first drawing is that when I abandoned it I decided to try a new technique and I think it worked.  This is the second in the series Faces of Leicester.
