It’s amazing to me how often I forget to what extent I love drawing expressive faces and just how much it scares me to start new ones at the same time. Ahhh, that imposter syndrome is deeply ingrained in me!

I started this with the blue background and red-orange hair. On a side note, I’m having a hell of a time finding a good red pastel crayon. I’m open to suggestions. I think I really enjoy the idea that her hair looks like flames that extend outside the frame of the composition, as if to indicate her joy cannot be contained. Her slightly furrowed eyebrows lend a bemused look. Is she in a state of bliss, simply enjoying a happy moment?

What does her face say to you?

More to come…
