to draw this face and money others, I put the pen down on the top of the nose and draw a nose shape, then populate the rest of the face around it ending with the jaw line and hair. It is a stream of consciousness drawing. I am not thinking or trying to draw something specific. so it is interesting to see what comes out of my pen. this is the basis for my enjoyment of drawing. I sometimes have an idea on what things will look like, but mostly I am surprised on what comes out. why that nose?
maybe it says something about my mental condition or some secret desire, or like a persons handwriting it can be analized, and torn down and studied, to get to an explanation of things, but like Santa Claus, once you look beyond your first impression, it is dead.
why kill it?
life has enough crap in it, we don’t need to add more….
