What if I use single threads, cross-hatch style like colored pencil?
This wasn't quite what I had in mind. It got too fussy as I started building up layers, so I decided to try to keep it simple. Need to play around with this technique more.
I have guests staying with me for a week, then a trip to Seattle, so this will be the end of the faces, at least for a while. I really enjoy working in a series like this. It seems for every one I do, I get two new ideas for more. Thanks for following along!
