Honey Bear is another well-loved friend who’s been with me for quite a while.
So I tried something different for this portrait–I “toned the ground” with a reddish-brown crayon before starting, and then erased it around his outline. I don’t think this technique worked particularly well with the crayon–I’ve used it to better effect with a graphite stick. It also seems clear that I emphasized his head and left his body very short in comparison.
How would you like other people to see you? How are you afraid that they see you?
