Head structure studies

Inspired by Steve Huston demo on New Masters Academy. Had to scumble some white acrylic over the lower part of the right drawing - too much solid black and contrast, too distracting, and had to set off the beard from the black background. White acrylic does some interesting things when scrubbed into water soluble Tombow ink. Can add a very painterly touch to a drawing.

  1. Acrylic over ink...Wow.. I can try that over the wood maybe.
