Conflict of Interest

My muse and I often have totally different Ideas of what needs to be done.

Case in point: I want to keep adding to the ‘series’ of blind/half blind watercolor faces I’ve been working on.
To that end I sat down and started drawing faces in my journal but……they weren’t working.
They didn’t have that ‘wonky’ quality I was looking for. 
And the more I drew the less wonky they were!

Kinda’ brings to mind that saying “You have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find a Prince’.  
I guess you have to draw a lot of faces before you get one that works! LOL

My easel…..is still waiting……lol


  1. Maybe you are getting too good at your art and the simpler wonkier faces harder to do now?

  2. I'm sure you'll meet your Prince ;)

  3. Well, I think they're all very good - Wonky has to be ditched now, don't try to find it Robin, you're on a roll :)

  4. No need for Princes!

    People don't have perfect faces, only Barbie-dolls do :D

  5. Maybe time to mix things up a bit? What if you drew your faces with your non-dominant hand?

  6. there are so many of these that i really, really like!! keep at it!!

  7. Oh, very recognizable .... I've tried for ages to draw wonky faces until I found a way by just drawing all in one line. But after a while (with practice) you get better at it and the wonky-ness disappears again.... Drawing with your non-dominant hand could help I think.... Although I can see quite a few with a wonky quality ;-)


I appreciate your comments!
