On The Drawing Board: Riding in Cars With Boys

It's been awhile since I've done a piece with a face that's as big or bigger than life. It's a nice change of pace and very different than working on a face that's only 3 to 4 inches high. A face has so many subtleties that when working on something small, the slightest change in a line or rub of a finger can drastically change the expression.

I am toying with the idea of blurring the background and to a degree all the other elements that are behind the primary figure in order to put even more focus on him...I'll see where it takes me.

Excited to see how this turns out!

Me too Aman! They don't always turn out how I picture. They evolve along the way.
