|One of Three, graphite, 6" x 8", Thirty Minute Daily Drawing Series|
When I told you I go head hunting with my camera, I do. There are heads all over the place--all you need is a long lense. The telephoto lens on the Nikon L120 is okay. The woman in Gone With the Wind was on the far side of the large hotel pool and down on the beach. To make the shot more difficult, she was in motion, as was the wind. I just kept pressing one exposure after another hoping one or two would take--and I got what I hoped. The woman in One of Three is 3000 miles away. My telephoto isn't that good, so I downloaded the reference from her Face Book page. While I usually insist upon only using photos I have shot for references, the photos of Face Book friends are also a source; they chose to share. Michaelle's profile photo was the reference for this drawing. I wondered why she was rolling her eyes?
Michaele is one of my grandchildren's three Nanas. We're a Modern Family. Rolling her eyes when this photo was taken made me want to draw that expression, which so many of us do and yet dislike when others do it.
Last night listening to the news, I couldn't believe Obama was missing at the march for solidarity in Paris. I thought his absence was Obamidable! Grounds for impeachment--but Ellis says not going to a world event isn't listed as an impeachable act. Okay then, take away his title The Leader of The Western World. He wasn't leading --and where was the Vice President? The Secretary of State? Shameful. Makes one wonder what dummy advisors these dummies have employed and are listening to. Makes you want to roll your eyes!
