Here is my work from the weekend on Jessica’s stock photo “Crimson Peak”.
I am still working on getting a likeness in the sketch. I always think of Milton Glaser who said that artists work their whole lives to get this right, and then when they do they realise likeness is not the point. Well I have yet to reach either of those two milestones. But I am enjoying the journey.
You can see the photo on Deviant Art on Jessica’s magnificent site.
The second sketch corrected the placement of her mouth:
The first watercolour was OK although I was disheartened by the likeness and stopped to begin a second.
Here is the second watercolour – I will see if I can take the time to work on it this week. I have a bit workload in my second life as consultant. So…
I wanted to get her full pose in but this reduced the size of her face where I wanted to get the features right – all these decisions to make.
Now back to Scrum and the joy of self-managing teams in delivering strategy.
