Picasso Inspired Face

I was inspired by Picasso to create this face:


I studied several photos of Picasso before I drew a sketch in pencil.  I colored my sections with oil pastels, using two different colors on top of each other.  Next, I scratched into the oil pastels with the end of a mechanical pencil to create the patterns.

I finished it by cutting out the face with scissors.  Oil pastels are a bit messy but I had fun experimenting!

It reminds me of one of my doodles…

Cheers! 🙂

  3. That’s fabulous, Jill! You’ve given me an idea. I’m halfway through a collage and don’t want to use paper for the background. I could do hills using oil pastels stratched through. Thanks!
