Weekend Head studies of African Boy
This weekend I sketched African faces. I really enjoy the geometries and the colors. It is very easy for a white artist to put his or her own facial features into another person's portrait or caricature. At least I find myself doing that all the time. These studies are meant to help me explore the beautiful differences in other races without the fear of the subject not liking it. These are just doodles...the same sort I would make in my drawing notebooks... each took about 20 minutes to do and they are both digital.
