Similarly, but in a totally different way, Frida Khalo’s frequent use of faces and people greatly helps me with picturing what exactly I am going to draw during this entire course. The point of drawing so many similar faces is not to just draw faces of specific people, but to convey emotion. You see, I love drawing people, but I doubt the people I see everyday would appreciate if I ended up drawing them every single day for the next couple of months. Drawing people in order to convey my emotions rather than necessarily drawing just what I see is an idea I can get behind.
I first tried to emulate Frida’s style as well as the theme, but I do not think I succeeded. I used pens oil pastels and watercolors to sketch.
