I started a project this weekend. I went through the pages of my current sketchbook and found all the drawings I had given up on and didn’t like. Then I separated them in to three categories (in my mind.)
1) Pages with a few pencil marks that can be erased and turned back in to blank usable pages
2) Drawings that are too much work to erase, or impossible to erase, that I don’t like very much, that I can draw over with pastels or collage over
3) Pages which have aspects I like that I can incorporate in to a new design
This was one of the only pages that fell within category three. I started out only with the face, and made a pattern of sorts with some tin foil, pieces of envelopes, and felt pens.
