What is she thinking?

FullSizeRender (41)

For my deliberate practice this week, I am using splashes of paint to convey a story and am getting a bit closer to what I want to achieve. First and most importantly, there is an idea communicated in this sketch. The tilt of the figure’s head along with the upward looking eye and ambivalent smile suggest that the woman is thinking about something complex. I used some line and then used a very limited set of colors for the splashes. I used paint unevenly, left portions unpainted and dropped paint into already painted areas. Altogether, this defined the planes of her face and neck. The paint marks are more confidently placed and the sketch is not overdone.
