I’m glad I didn’t explicitly promise progress on yesterdays piece, because today I did not feel the groove. Instead I wanted to do some studying and I was prompted by the Lip studies an artist I follow had done; So Lips! I shall learn them.
So far I’ve learned that less is more, In many attempts I wanted to define and detail, but often I find that purposeful clean lines do more than any ammount of fussy detailing can do. Also highlights seem to help a lot ( Though not everyone wears shiny lipstick. )
So here they are, everything from horrible first attempts to starting to understand more. I’m lucky in that I can internalise information like this rather quickly, so they may already be a style I can incorporate in art.
